A stunning Modernist-style vintage Navajo

silver cuff bracelet, circa 1950’s-60’s



This one is a real beauty; elegant and streamlined in the Modernist style of Navajo jewelry pioneered by Ambrose Roanhorse and the Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild in the 1930’s and 40’s and continued and built upon by Kenneth Begay and his colleagues at Scottsdale’s White Hogan Shop and still later by Joe H. Quintana.


The fabricated silver cuff is subtly curved and contoured inwards along every edge creating a wide expanse of gleaming silver which is unexpectedly and boldly decorated with a diagonal row of perfectly-applied chisel and stampwork designs cutting sharply all the way across the bracelet from end to end and top to bottom.

The overall visual effect created here is just dazzling!


The bracelet measures 1 3/4” in width all the way around. The inner circumference end-to-end is 5 5/8” and the gap between the terminals is 1” for an overall interior circumference of 6 5/8". It weighs a very comfortable and easily wearable 69 grams or 2 3/8 ounces. The bracelet is in excellent original condition with some

age-appropriate abrasions and nicks and it is marked “Sterling” on the interior.


This bracelet is a beautifully conceived, perfectly crafted piece with a serious amount of style and elegance.



Price $1,375
