This was my great aunts. She got this quite some time ago but I’m not sure where. It has been passed down to me and I know very little about it except that it is a squash blossom. It is on the smaller side, fits like a choker. It has hand engraved initials on back and it also has the word “set” engraved.
Hello, thanks for sharing. This is a beautiful piece. It appears to be a Zuni made piece. The style is referred to as petit point. Many different Zuni artists make this style of work. Your necklace is attached to a handmade chain. If you want to send a picture of the engraved initials I will see if I can identify them.
Hi Jason! Thank you so much for responding. I have a picture for you of the back. In case you’re having a hard time seeing it, it says " NXX Set" engraved. Any info on this and it’s value would be greatly appreciated.
That is a trader’s mark. It is a code for the trader to know his cost, it is not an artist mark. I would think this would be priced somewhere around $180 - $225. Hope this helps.
Thank you so much!!!
