Looking for a value on this vintage hand made Zuni Cluster-work Turquoise Necklace set in Silver
I have what I’ve been told is a Zuni cluster-work necklace. Also have been told that it is hand made including chain and clasp, that each bezel is serrated by hand, dating it to 1940’s to 1950’s and manufactured bezels made an appearance in the 70’s.
There is some confusion about it’s worth or if above information is correct; opinions on this will be greatly appreciated. It is missing one stone which is around here somewhere.
Thank you very much!
You might want to look through some quality Zuni work ! Your necklace shows uneven mountings and missing some links from one side as well as the large ring at the end !! Not saying it is not Zuni,, but it appears to be either a tourist type necklace or has been treated roughly ! They usually take great care in their work !! That is why some have above average prices !!
My information comes from a Native American jewelry store owner.
