Included in this lot is a Navajo Native American sterling silver and turquoise bear pendant on a snake chain necklace. This is a wonderfully designed bear fetish with a turquoise mosaic arrow. The bear pendant is etched with a sunburst design and has a six stone turquoise, onyx, and pipestone inlay in the shape of an arrow. On a bar between the bear’s feet is a feather hanging. The reverse of the bear is stamped with ‘Sterling’ and has a pin holder, so the bear and feather can also be worn off the chain as a pin. The chain measures 17 ½” long. The bear measures 1" by 2 1/4" to the bottom of the feather. This item is in good condition.
