Vintage Zuni Sterling Silver & Mosaic Inlay Rainbow Man Pin
This is an exquisite vintage, 1940's to 1960's, Zuni Rainbow Man Kachina Dancer sterling silver brooch or pin. The mosaic inlay uses an intricate combination of natural turquoise, black jet, mother of pearl, and red spiny oyster. I believe this is sterling silver, but it may be less. The silver has a nice vintage patina and handwork details. The rollover safety pin clasp works perfectly. There are a few scratches on the back and the stones are in good shape with no cracks or chips, just natural imperfections typical of natural materials - see the photos. It measures 2.5 inches tall and about 1 3/8th inches wide, and weighs 16g. This pin was left to me by my mother and I believe it belonged to my grandmother. It is a beautiful pin to add to your collection and enjoy wearing! Ships Priority or First Class, your choice.
