This is really a great old Native American handmade bracelet. You can see all of the wear to the twisted wire and the great patina. When the piece was purchased by the collector in San Diego he was given a letter of authenticity from the Gallery that he purchased it from which dates it 1920's. We completely agree with that attribution and believe that you will too. If you would like a copy, I can send it with the bracelet so that you can track the provenance. Just let me know.
This is really a wonderful example of what the Navajo were producing in the 1920's. Even with the limitations in materials and technology that they faced, they were still able to produce high quality jewelry that will last forever.
