BEAUTIFUL, LARGE and HEFTY TURQUOISE and STERLING SILVER CUFF BRACELET by NAVAJO ARTIST and SILVERSMITH WALTER BENALLY and BEARS HIS MARK. LIKELY HANDCRAFTED SOMETIME IN THE MID 1970's. LOWER RECESSED AREA'S ON FACE OF BRACELET ANTIQUED with LIVER of SULPHUR or SOME OTHER COMPOUND TO MAKE THE BEAUTIFUL TURQUOISE STONES REALLY STAND OUT so don't mistake this for natural oxidation and clean it out! 2 OF THE STONES ON ONE END DO HAVE CRACKS but IMHO DOES NOT DETRACT MUCH AT ALL FROM THE OVERALL BEAUTY OF THE PIECE.
THOUGH THEY COULD BE EASILY and RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVELY REPLACED. HAS NOT BEEN CLEANED IN SOMETIME... WE LEAVE THAT PLEASURE TO THE NEW OWNER if THEY'RE SO INCLINED. WE PREFER TO SELL'EM AS WE FIND'EM and NEVER CLEAN or ALTER OUR ITEMS. IT MEASURES 1 1/2 AT IT'S WIDEST POINT.
EACH of THE 5 TURQUOISE CABS MEASURE about 7/8" z 1/4". WRIST GAP / OPENING 3/4.
TAGS: VINTAGE ARTISAN JEWELRY SOUTHWESTERN TRIBAL NORTH NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN HANDMADE HAND WROUGHT 925 UNITED STATES of AMERICA 1970's. ALSO: We primarily sell antique / vintage collectible items. Old, used items often have some issues in terms of condition, function and even smell (some items just have stubborn or lingering smells).We do our best to point out all flaws and try to take crisp clear photos of our merchandise so you know exactly what you will be receiving. But, we may make a mistake occasionally and overlook a flaw or defect. Also, if an item has a particularly pungent smell (usually only an issue with more molecularly porous items made of paper/wood or fabrics/textiles) we will also make note of it in the listing. Older items will show some signs of wear and age to some degree and may need to be reconditioned, refurbished and restored. In regard to odors, we know everyone's olfactories are different. That is, smell is subjective and some folks have a'sniffer' like a bloodhound and some folks have a poor sense of smell. Mine, for example, is probably less than average (sinus issues).
The point is, and this should go without saying, don't expect old antique / vintage items to look, work and smell like new!
