Description
 
Absolutely one of the most beautiful examples of Zuni inlay work, this beautiful prize winning pin was hand crafted by Zuni artist Myra Tucson. Myra was best known for her outstanding channel inlay work. A career beginning in the early 1940's and one of the few female artists in Zuni, Myra mastered the art of fine inlay. This lovely piece is set with all Natural materials, that radiate with color. The pin offers the best of her work, with precise channel inlay and curved silver work.

The pin measures 2" long by 2" wide. Not hallmarked, as she only signed when asked, but the pin and ribbon are hooked together with the exhibitors name, M. Tucson and judges name on the ribbon. Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial, Gallup New Mexico 1965. The 2 judges names are not recognizable, as judges were brought in from around the country.
Acquired from the family/collection of long time trader Charles Newcomb. Mr. Newcomb was the second owner of the established 1926 trading post, Casa del Navajo in Coolidge, NM.
