Info on very old Zuni ring?


#1

I spoke to another dealer who says this ring is an early example of Frank Dishta. I’m wondering if you agree with her opinion. Could you give me some idea whether you think it is worth it to get it appraised. Thanks!

It is definitely the right style, without a hallmark (common for this era) it could be attributed to Frank or Virgil. You should be able to find enough things on the internet to give you an idea of value. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Jason. I have been researching and realized what I picked up for a great price was potentially a more valuable item. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen a ring quite like this from Frank or Virgil on the internet. The rings I have seen are much larger than this small one. That may be because this ring is older and an earlier work, as mentioned by the other dealer.
