I have the opportunity to purchase this piece but I am unfamiliar with the form or value.
The story I am being told is that is was given a verbal appraisal as likely a Navajo chest piece and made is the thirties or forties. The pieces are held together with what appears to be some type of lacquer.
Overall length is about 6", weight feels to be about 5 or 6 ounces.
Thanks for the help.
