Dumb Bunny with Rings


Only 5 of the rings I purchased 18-20 years ago at So. Calif. (probably Big Bear) Pow Wows have marks. I’m not a collector; just got them because they struck my fancy. Now I’m getting ready to sell them or put them in a will. Do any of you folks recognize the mark(s) on this ring?

And number four:


Finally, No. 5 was handed down when a friend passed. I’ve no notion about its age or origin. For all I know, Thompson was simply someone who owned it before she did. Any thoughts? Thanks to all of you for any information you can put together for me.

I didn’t recognize any of the hallmarks and didn’t find any of them in “Hallmarks of the Southwest”. This style was very popular in the 1980s and many people were making jewelry at this time.


Thank you, Jason. My knowledge and resources are extremely limited, but not my curiosity. Maybe some of your readers will recognize one or more of the “signatures.” Again, thank you for trying. fp
