Magnificent large coral cluster pin/pendant by master Zuni artist Alice Quam. Face of pin measures 3" in diameter with three rings of petit point coral cabochons ranging in size from 3/8" long in the outer ring, 1/4" in the second, and 3/16"+ in the third. At the center is a 3/8 round coral. All are in serrated bezels with rounds of twisted silver wire between the rows and accented with small silver drops throughout the design.A classic style by Alice Quam repeated many times with many different materials throughout her career. Her coral pieces are spectacular. Pin mechanism is in good working order.
Since pins no longer suit our lifestyles, it is fortunately fitted with a hook to suspend it from a chain or silver beads. I can't say more; it is in excellent condition to wear and add to a valued collection of vintage Native American jewelry. Most of my items are vintage and have been lovingly worn, so will show signs of that use. Thank you for looking at my auctions and good luck!
