Beautiful vintage 40’s-50’s Navajo repousse’ sunburst decorative stamped pin/brooch. The artist starts by applying a repousse’ stamped silver sunburst in the center encircled twice with primitive repeating square/diamond shaped stamping around the edge of the sunburst rays. The silversmith continues to decorate by adding a repeat sunrise/full moon stamping around the outer rim which caused the rim to become similar to a scallop cut due to the force of the symbol being inset into the silver. The artist finishes decorating by adding a smooth bezel set oblong turquoise stone in the center. The original stone had two (2) cracks so we had a new stone set into the bezel. The artist has finished the brooch by attaching a silver plated copper pin (seen due to wear) with locking safety clasp on the back

The brooch measures 1 1/8” tall by 1 3/4” across and weighs 12.8 grams. It’s unsigned sterling silver with exception of the attached pin as stated above. We salvaged the brooch from being melted down for it’s silver content and in turn was able to save it’s unique history for another persons collection and enjoyment. Very nice vintage 40’s-50’s Navajo brooch displaying decorative stampwork using early primitive and handmade tools! $69.95
