I recently acquired a stunning, signed turquoise and silver bracelet and don’t know anything about its origin. Purchased at a local antique shop, the owner didn’t have any information on it but I simply liked the looks of the piece and my husband purchased it for me. How could I better research this item?
Yes a stunning bracelet, that is for sure. It seems to be a vintage Navajo cuff made with a gorgeous piece of turquoise. I see it has a stable crack.
You sent the signature as if it were MS but when I flipped the photo so that it read SW, it seemed more like a natural flow of the signature.
None of my vintage hallmark books show an SW hallmark. We have purchased some contemporary pieces by a Navajo artist Steve Wallace but he stamps the initials in Gothic SW and wouldn’t have been around to make this vintage piece.
Perhaps someone else might have an idea.
Regardless, it is very pretty, vintage Navajo cuff bracelet !
