WOW! Large heavy vintage 30's-50's Zuni one hundred three (103) piece flush inlaid turquoise satellite cluster bracelets. We stumbled across another one of these old Dishta bracelets! Made with thirty seven (37) circular inlays, sixty five (65) teardrop inlays, and a silver oblong oval inlay in center. All flush inlaid to the silver with separations of silver drops and twisted wire. The artist has mounted the three (3) settings to a sturdy, solid three (3) piece half round wire cuff that soldered together at each end with an inside silver cap.

The large and heavy bracelet measures 2 1/8" wide with an inner circumference of 5 7/8" and a 1 1/4" opening. It will fit a 6 7/8" to 7 1/8" wrist as is and cannot be adjusted out. The bracelet weighs a healthy 71.2 grams (2.51 ounce or 2.29 troy ounces) and is unsigned ingot sterling silver. This was either made by Frank Dishta or his son Virgil Dishta Sr. Frank was the original artist to design this style of inlay making jewelry with his wife Pauline back as far as 1930's-40's for Zuni trader C.G.Wallace. Very collectible piece!  $789.95
