" B S " hallmark


#1

I can not find this anywhere! The hallmark looks like it clearly has the initials " B S" . There seems to be a slight cresent shape that opens towards the B, but it is small. This piece is a pretty large and heavy pendant ( almost 3 1/2 inches in length). The turquoise looks genuine , and the feathers have a lot of good detail on them. The other pieces I have found in this collection range from zuni rings to Maisel’s sterling bracelets . This one is very tricky though! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this piece sterling silver? It is different than anything I have seen before, any idea where the collection is from?

Jason,

There are no markings to confirm sterling or not. I have no idea where this came from. I’m still on the search for information on this.

Usually when you have a piece of Navajo or Zuni cast jewelry the design is carved on one side of the tufa stone and a flat piece is used for the back when casting. That leaves a solid back, different from this piece. Thank you for using the forum to share.
