Zuni Inlay Brass with K L


#1

The K’s legs are detached at each junction but the L is not. Lower leg of K and upper leg of K have a triangle between them. Capital Letters, no period. Probably 70’s

Chip inlay was a very popular style started by Navajo silversmith Thomas Singer. It is interesting that the piece is copper, most likely produced when silver went up in price dramatically when Hunt brothers attempted to corner market.

I completely overlooked the Navajo chip inlay. But it still doesn’t bring me closer who this artist is. Copper is interesting, I haven’t been to the jewelers to verify it yet, Will Thursday. any ideas on the artist? Hunt brothers, if I remember right had their fingers in a number of things. Thank you, Jason for any help and all help you have given me. C

Thank you I knew I should…da. Here are some pictures, the jeweler says it is brass. Other than that I still haven’t found the artist.
