Anselm Wallace was born in the 1930s. He was active as a silversmith at Zuni Pueblo from the mid-1950s until about 1990. He was well-known for his flower mosaic design, often referred to as a desert rose. His work was not signed until the late 1970s, so this piece dates from the period of 1980-1990.
