Here is a lovely, older, Navajo hair ornament. This handmade hair fork has a very pretty design, with excellent workmanship.
I especially like the stamp work. The silver has a bit more shine than in the photos. The turquoise cab is also shinier and a bit darker than it appears on my monitor.
The traditional, twisted prongs are functional, as well as pretty. They help the ornament stay in place when worn. Is about 3 1/2 long.
Is about 1 11/16 wide. Weighs about 12.5 grams.
The cab is about 8 x 10mm. The turquoise is free from cracks and is secure in its setting. Due to the current circumstances, I'm combining trips to the Post Office. Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll be do my best to answer them. Thank you for considering this lovely, older, Navajo hair fork.All Best Wishes for your Good Health and Happiness.
