  • Description
    6” ring size; 2” long

    onyx, mother of pearl, green turquoise, spandela shell, sterling silver

    circa 1960s-1970s

    excellent condition

    This vintage Zuni Minnie Mouse ring is a rare early work.

    This Disney-inspired Zuni ring is beautifully made with fine stonework. Minnie Mouse has a lot of feminine charm in her stance and friendly smile and she has survived the years in terrific condition.

    This ring was part of a group of Zuni Disney character rings that came from a private collection. Each one of the rings in this collection was clearly made by a skilled Zuni lapidary who utilized high quality stones.

    I have erred on the side of caution in dating these rings. Dating this Zuni-made Disney jewelry has been a matter of using my knowledge combined with my instinct. I listed the four pieces of Zuni Disney design character jewelry as having been made from the 1960s to the 1970s but they may well have been made earlier.
