Vintage squash blossoms


I got this last fall and have no idea what it is worth. It measures 29" tip to tip and the nala is 3 1/2" by 3 1/4". It weighs 240 grams. I was told it was from the estate of a woman who collected in the 50s & 60s.

I got another which has been appraised, by Betty Etsate, from the same estate:

Beautiful pieces. The Navajo squash blossom is most likely newer than the dates you were given. The beads are machine made, which doesn’t happen until later. I would date the squash blossom to the 1980s. Squash blossoms have become very popular recently and this one has a very nice look. I would say around $1200.
