A lovely hollow-form Navajo silver ring by Austin (Ike) Wilson,

circa 1930’s-1940’s



Austin Wilson was one of the giants of 20th Century Navajo silversmithing and this beautiful ring is fully indicative of the outstanding quality of his work. Wilson spent the majority of his career working for the famed Indian Trader, C.G. Wallace, where he created many of the great silver masterpieces Wallace supplied to Museums and important private collections around the country.


This beautiful ring has several of the signature characteristics of Wilson’s work, highly-accomplished and extremely sophisticated  hollowform fabrication and precisely-executed and profuse decorative stampwork.


The ring measures 3/4” across its face and is a size 6 1/2 measured on a professional ring sizer.

It weighs an extremely comfortable 6 grams or 1/4 ounce. It is in excellent original condition and it is properly signed on the interior with Austin Wilson’s customary Bow and Arrow insignia. Wilson was one of the very first historic Navajo silversmiths to sign his work consistently and his hallmark is well-known as a guarantee of the finest quality.
