Zuni Pawn Sunburst Bracelet in Turquoise and Sterling Silver with Provenance


1950s Zuni sunburst bracelet in sterling silver and clean blue turquoise. It has 57 stones. The cuff was formed of hand-pulled sterling silver wire. If you look closely, you can see the striations on the metal. It measures 1 5/8" wide. The interior measurement is 5 7/8" plus the opening of 1 1/4".  Weight: 44.2 grams.  In excellent condition.

This bracelet came from the Frank Gingerich estate. He was a biker, rode a Harley and was a member of the Hell's Angels. He also had a very fine turquoise collection and I am lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to purchase it.

This piece comes with its original receipts. It was given to Frank's wife for Christmas in 1974. Purchased on Christmas even and paid off on January 18. There are two receipts that will be sent with the bracelet. It was not new when Frank purchased it, but 20 years old. Silver is tarnished and it is advised to leave the patina as it is. 

Shipping with insurance is free to buyer.
