Unique vintage Navajo/Southwest turquoise repousse' stamped butter knife brooch. Appears machine punched, but has characteristics of "Harvey Era" tourist trade piece. Made to resemble an actual Navajo made silver butter knife with details in the handle, repousse' stamping, arrow stamp, and a smooth bezel set turquoise bead with stamping around it to resemble a sun. It has a safety locking pin and clasp attached to the back.

The butter knife brooch measures 3/8" wide by 2 5/8" long and weighs 3.4 grams. It's stamped STERLING on the inside. Evidently a previous owner didn't think it was sterling silver and did an acid test on the back side of the knife.  $24.95
