Anyone familiar with B or Breon Wallace?

Trying to figure out of these are legit Zuni - i see a lot of B or Breon Wallace signed inlay thunderbirds, almost identical, but nothing else by this individual, and no other forms. any info you know about them? i’m thinking this turquoise might be block.

Hi @Jemez2, I also have one of these. I got it at an antiques mall. I can’t make the name out either. At one time I was trying to make B. Waatsa out of it but I don’t think so. I suspect it is block materials too.


I had a ring nearly identical to this many years ago, but don’t have it anymore. I’m pretty sure mine didn’t have a signature though.

So I may have said this on here before, but these little guys always remind me of a Pileated Woodpecker, one of the coolest birds.


This is a Rosita Wallace thunderbird, lots of similarities.


Do we think Breon may be a family member using their designs, or is Breon a copycat from overseas? I love the sweep and movement of the wingtips.

I find a Breon Wallace from Zuni, early fifties.


Thank you Jason! Do you mean she worked in the 1950s, or her age now is in her 50s?

The listing I have is a male, and is now in his early 50s.

interesting! i assumed that was a woman’s name!!! thanks!!
