Check this out you guys and gals!

So I grabbed this up this week at an auction, basing my decision on a quick look. Got it home and wow!

Absolutely stunning, amazing details. Anyone want to give it a guess? I will post the markings tomorrow. I am just amazed at what they are. Please leave me your thoughts on craftsmanship and stone. Stay tuned!!

Stone looks like Lapis or Hemimorphite to me.

Though the style is vintage, with the “petals” and the feather/leaf and the rope twist, I think it’s Revivalist style, and that it’s not vintage. So I am going to guess it’s by Kirk Smith.

I would guess it’s lapis. I love that stone when it has a few silver flecks in it. This seems like a clear, pure royal blue.

As promised…This is a Mexican piece! It does have a great look too, but check out the hallmark. Having a Mexico stamp I wonder still about the stone. I haven’t seen much Royal Lapis out of Mexico. Fun Stuff!

I was soooo wrong. I’ve got only one thing that may be Mexican. I’ll have to post it here sometime. It’s a pair of earrings with Dragon’s Breath stones in them.

@saef I thought it was Native too, so don’t feel bad lol!!!
