Rare Native American Silver Fetish Animal And Bird Necklace Heavy 116 G
Rare Native American Silver Fetish Animal And Bird Necklace Heavy 116 Grams. Here we have a flash from the past–a silver bead necklace with silver fetish beads of animals such as turtles, birds, badgers, fox and fish all interspersed among the silver tubular heishi, plus small round silver beads capping each animal. That design of liquid silver mixed with animal fetishes–it smacks of the 1970s! The fetishes are mold cast, and heavy. Since there are no sterling stamps–casting generally does not allow for a stamp–I did acid test one of the fetishes in an obscure underside of the long tail (since acid testing can leave a small lighter dot) and it did test positive for sterling silver. They have no hallmark, so while we can’t say for certain that they are Native American, we believe they are Zuni. The necklace is long at 34 total length end to end, and each of the 21 animal fetishes ranges from 3/4″ long to 1-1/4″ long. They are absolutely adorable and, again, have weight to them. A whopping 4 + ounces total or 115 grams. The piece is threaded on wire and ends with a hook and eye. The silver has a beautiful, kind of dark patina, and if you prefer I will be happy to give it a light polish. Very rare and hard to find extremely heavy great quality please see photos closely for condition and thanks for looking.
