Late Art Deco 14kt Yellow Gold Native American Chief Pendant
An exquisite and unusual die stuck pendant from the late Art Deco (ca1930) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold, this oval shaped piece is adorned with a gorgeous raised profile bust of a Native American chief. The details are fantastic, including his stoic facial expression, wavy hair, long textured feather hairpiece, and his stunning delicate bone necklace. The die struck details come alive against the matte gold background and finishing the design is a simple round bail at the top, and a "14K" gold purity mark beside an "r" maker's mark on the smoothly polished back. The pendant would look wonderful hanging from a favorite chain and would make a fabulous statement piece when worn!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 1 3/8" long (including the bail at the top), and measures about 3/4" wide and about 1/8" thick. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 5.2dtw (8.1 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting or to the raised detail on the surface. The bail is secure and in good working condition.
