A very nice vintage squash blossom necklace from the 1930s-1940s. Unusually heavy weight blossoms. The turquoise is probably from one of the Nevada Mines but it’s difficult to narrow it down with any degree of certainty. 25.5 inches long. $2400. (TUCSON)
On the back of the nazha is scratched the name of the previous owner: Reyes S Toya. A potter at Jemez Pueblo, she was born April 16 1907 and passed away November 10, 2003. This was sold by her or her family sometime around the 1980s as that is when the subsequent owner purchased it.
