SIGNED/INDENTIFYING FEATURES: Handmade by Navajo artist Ambrose Roanhorse and signed with his personal hallmark. (see below) Ambrose Roanhorse, a Navajo silversmith taught at the government Indian School in Santa Fe in the late 1930s, and was one of the first artisans to venture away from traditional designs into the more modern look. Roanhorse used simple forms, bold lines, minimal stamping and high quality stones. These progressive designs reflected the modernists post war aesthetic.

DESCRIPTION: is a stunning Native American handmade bracelet by one of the most important Navajo artists Ambrose Roanhorse. Most probably made after WWII, this incredible bracelet is inlaid with beautiful blue turquoise stones. The stone setting is mounted to a shank that is decorated with twisted and plain wire. A lightly stamped rim frames the entire bracelet.

Honestly the images do a better job of describing this wonderful historic piece so take a look.

SIZE: 1" wide with an inside circumference of 5-5/8" from end to end plus a 7/8" opening and weighs 58 grams/2 oz.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with expected wear for the age. The stone work is perfect with no cracks or chips. Please review the photos for more detail.

This is truly a gorgeous bracelet by one of the great Navajo Masters. Finding a piece of this caliber with fantastic silver and lapidary work, gem quality turquoise and historical significance is rare to say the least. Don't let this one go!
