  Large detailed vintage 30's Navajo turquoise crossed arrows brooch/pin! The large pin consists of two (2) long silver detailed arrows crossed with a single polished turquoise stone set in a smooth bezel and mounted between the feathered quivers. The artist has applied detailed stamping to the feathers and added an overlay for the arrowheads. The silversmith has attached an old C-Clasp pin on the back. This is one of many made back in the 1930's-1940's for the early tourist trade. Other's I've seen had a polished coral set between the arrowhead, but this pin is either missing the coral or the silversmith neglected to add coral whereas I don't see any signs of soldering where the bezel would have been mounted. Even so, with or without the coral they are still a highly sought collector's piece of yesteryear.

The large pin measures 2 1/2" by 1 3/8" across with each individual arrow measuring 2 5/8" long. It weighs 7.7 grams and is unmarked sterling silver. Very nice vintage collectors brooch from the early tourist trade!  $79.95
