John B. Hawley

Does anyone have any information on this silversmith? I own a beautiful squash blossom necklace and the silver work is top-notch. It is a petit point weighing in at a hefty 470 grams. I can’t find anything about him. Hallmark on piece is JBH. Thank you in advance for your help on this, my very first post.

I have seen this hallmark. I looked up a piece to see what the work would look like, http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Pawn-Signed-JBH-John-B-Hawley-Zuni-Sterling-Silver-Cuff-Bracelet-INLAID-Bird-/230807895299. The name is unfamiliar to me, the work appears to be Navajo. Can you upload a picture? Thanks for sharing.

Sorry, I can’t find any information on this artist other than Barton Wright’s John B. Hawley. I did a local search of names, Hawley has one listing in the area, which is unusual. Name might be something different, I will keep looking.
