Ancient Zuni bear fetish set into a sliver ring
An established dealer of Native American crafts in San Francisco told me that the three fetish rings I offer here were the oldest she had ever seen. She also said they were important and sacred so this is why some one set them into silver and made them into rings. This Zuni bear fetish is shell, it is over a century old, the silver setting is over 50 years old. The ring is size 5, the bear fetish is about 3/4" long. This is a museum quality piece of Native American art.
