I researched the hallmark of FN as best I could with no hallmark book. I found numerous rings that look like this with the name of Frank Nutiama. I posted elsewhere about this and was told it was another artist. What sayest thou on who made it?
Thanks for this! Now I have confirmation.
And just so you don’t think it’s always cut and dried, I found this…
Its from here…
That’s what I originally went with.
I would think the first one with stampings, nugget sets and classic styles though.
I agree with your hallmark attribution here, additionally, Nutaima sounds more like a hopi name to me.
That’s what I thought as well but as a novice here, I didn’t know. So still learning.
It takes a minute or two but you’ll get there. I’m amazed at how much more I know now than I did a year ago, or more accurately, how much basic stuff I didn’t know. A lot of it came from reading the back post on this site.
Ditto, entire foundation of my knowledge base came from here
Worth mentioning too… the carved grooves in the turquoise is something you see frequently with many Eustace family members and Bille Hougart mentions Feline’s family ties to Robert Mac Eustace Jones which I think strengthens the attribution.
