FABULOUS old pawn squash blossom. Estate piece. Gorgeous patina on sterling silver. Crushed turquoise and coral inlay. Hollow beads. Strung on wire. VERY unique birds - similar to peyote birds, but with forward-pointing wings instead of raked-back. I have never seen any quite like them. 14 total birds - 6 pairs on chain, one on central pendant, and one small bird hanging from clasp. Each bird measures 1&3/8" beak-to-tail and 1" across at the wings, with the exception of the one on the clasp which is a smaller 1&1/8" x 3/4". Central pendant is 2&1/2" diameter. Total length of the chain is 27". Pendant is stamped with a "Y". (The Yazzie family is a well-known Navajo silversmithing family, and the mark could be associated with them, but that has not been authenticated for this piece.) Please refer to the photos. This piece is vintage, one-of-a-kind, and sold as-is.
