The lot features an outstanding, solid sterling silver box by Randy Begay Jr., a master Navajo Indian silversmith. This is one of only two boxes that Randy Begay Jr. has ever made and is truly a phenomenal, authentic Navajo piece. The box is nicely stamped on the bottom, “RB JR” and “Sterling”, and the piece shows a heavy gauge sterling silver construction with immensely detailed, highly figure repousse (hammered into relief from the reverse side). The box has a hinged lid showing a hinged lock and four small feet. The box has unbelievable detail and is finished with a large repousse, raised tooled center with traditional old pawn tooling. The bottom of the box shows four concho tooled feet. The entire box is in brand new, pristine condition. This is truly only one of two authentic Navajo sterling silver boxes with a fine contemporary age on the market. Measures overall 4 3/8”x3 3/8”x3 1/8”. The box weighs 247.5 grams of sterling silver.
