1950's Navajo Arts & Crafts Guild Sterling & Turquoise Pin
Rare contemporary design pin from 1950's bearing the seal of the Navajo Arts & Crafts Guild.
The silver work of The Navajo Guild is characterized by its extremely high-level of overall quality, use of classic Navajo silversmithing techniques and materials, clean, often modernist lines, restrained use of stamp, chisel and file work and only the VERY occasional appearance of set stones.
The Guild's standards were exacting and their instructors were among the most accomplished Navajo jewelers of the era making their work highly desirable and collectible.
