  • Description
    Zuni knifewing god pin
    circa 2 3/8” wide x 3” long

    turquoise (Blue Gem??), spiny oyster (spandela shell), jet, mother of pearl, sterling silver

    excellent condition

    circa 1930s-1950s



    This beautiful knifewing god pin is beautifully made with mosaic inlay set into sterling silver. The detailed silverwork around the edges of this pin were probably made by Navajo silversmiths who C G Wallace brought to Zuni in order for them to work with the best Zuni artists.

    Be sure to note the similarity of this work to the smaller pin that we are also posting to our site (mc0710). We believe these two pins were made by the same Zuni artist.
