Sorry, this item has sold.

Lolita Natachu Zuni Thunderbird Brooch Pendant of Sterling Silver Inlaid with Multiple Stones. A thunder bird with upraised wings graces the center of this disc-shaped pin pendant combination with triangle accents at the edges. The piece is expertly inlaid with turquoise, jet, white oyster shell and coral.

Stamped on the reverse LN. This is the mark of Zuni silversmith Lolita Natachu, but it is our understanding that she typically worked with her husband Fred, even when using her own stamp. It seems their process was very collaborative.

The pin measures 2 3/8 inches in diameter. It is finished with a pin stem with roll over safety and also has a pendant bale.

In Excellent Vintage Condition, with minor surface scratches from storage. The brooch was never worn.

We purchased the collection of new old stock inventory from a closed trading post style store that ceased operation in the 1980s. This piece comes from that collection and was never worn.
