I have an old inlay fire bird pendent - Wondering which Tribe it would be from and how old it might be? I couldn’t find any markings and there is no silver - the back is black wood or stone.
measures 3 inches by about 2"
PS - I have a picture how do I attach? or I can send a email?

I got it. You think of this work as Santo Domingo Pueblo jewelry. They are often referred to as depression era birds because they come from this time period 1920s - 40s. The black is mostly likely car battery, and except for that inlaid chipped turquoise everything else is not real material.

Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your quick response and information. So I have a Thunderbird not a (fire bird)!
Great to know the history - I have had it since I was young and now I be on the look out for a necklace to match it!
