Zuni Petit Point Bracelet
This Zuni Petit Point Bracelet was made around 1950 and has many pear shape Turquoise gemstones with a round petit point Turquoise stone in the center of the Bracelet. This Silver Bracelet also has nice Silver work and is of a nice design. We purchased this Zuni Petit Point Bracelet from a private Indian Jewelry collection near the Shonto Trading Post. The owners had purchased a major collection of Zuni Jewelry around 1965 when the Trading Post was changing Traders. This is a classic Zuni Petit Point Bracelet from the 1940 - 1970 period, it does have natural Arizona Turquoise so we are certain it is truly an early piece.
