Description
 
This lovely Manta pin was hand fabricated by renowned Zuni silversmiths, Warren and Doris Ondelacy. It is set with 73 beautiful, hand cut Morenci turquoise cabochons that are carefully set in fine hand crafted saw tooth bezels. Silver twist wire with an open repousse design, creates a beautiful frame around the center cluster of turquoise stones. Stamped drops on the end of each stone adds the final touch to this lovely pin. The pin measures 4 diameter.

This pin has a C.G. Wallace code etched on the back. This pin is dated to the late 1940's and does not have a maker's mark--being of a time when such things were not commonly done. Strong provenance of the makers and circa accompany this pin. Please visit our artist biographies for more history on the Ondelacy family.
