Can anyone ID this?

Hey,

Have looked through several books of hallmarks, with no luck. It was my grandmother’s…she lived in Tulsa, OK, from 1926-1998 and also spent a lot of time in Pagosa Springs, CO. I don’t know anything about it. Besides the artist, I’m curious about the thunderbird on the back…is there a reason to have something so detailed on the back of the piece?

I could not find this hallmark in any book. It is not uncommon to have such a detailed hallmark. You would assume that the piece is Native American made because of a Thunderbird hallmark, but I don’t think this piece is. Pagosa is a place that draws lots of spiritual people due to the hot springs and Native American presence, which inspires creative people to use turquoise and silver.

Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the info…
