I have never seen an adjustable ring by a major artist, so I am assuming this is a pretty rare item. Currently size 7 but can easily be adjusted larger and perhaps a bit smaller. Not sure what the design is, circa 1970's, excellent vintage condition.

I think I am reading the kanji on the box correctly. I will try to find out which Shuho made this. I am pretty sure it is not Shuho Takasaki. Depicts bamboo, beautifully done, excellent condition, with signed box.

Anthony Lovato is well known and his work is represented in many publications and museum collections. This bracelet is tufa cast and set with a nice Royston mine turquoise.

The expression " cuter than a bug's ear " comes to mind ( what does a bug's ear look like anyway? ). Nice screw back ear rings probably from the 1950's or 60's. Marked sterling. Excellent condition, about 5/8" long.

Dating to the 1960's or earlier, this is a very well made bracelet, note the difficult curved inlay for the tail and the precise silver work. This is undoubtedly the work of one of the Zuni masters. The face of the bracelet is about 2 3/8" tall, and the inner circumference is about 5" PLUS a 1 3/8" gap. Excellent condition. A major collector's piece!

This is a rare item, I have only seen a few buckles made and signed by Kenneth Begay. This buckle is about 2 7/8" long by about 1 3/8" wide and is decorated in deep repossee with a cotton bole ( the flower of the cotton plant that then goes to seed and turns into cotton ). Mr. Begay used this design on other items as well. The buckle is hallmarked with the initials KB in a reserve, the White Hogan mark and sterling. Circa 1950's.

This is not your typical 1920's Fred Harvey piece. It is completely hand made and fabricated ( all the silver was cast by hand and formed into shape ) It looks like even the pin back was made by hand! This piece was made by one of the greats, Mark Chee, Fred Peshlakai, Morris Robinson, all made similar pieces. About 2 7/8" long by 13/16" wide. The Gem grade turquoise is Nevada mine, and most likely from Red Mountain, Indian Mountain, Pilot Mountain or similar...

This one is a bit of a mystery. The mei reads Jugyoku, and it appears to be one of the later mei, but I can't find out much about the carver. There were two carvers who signed Jugyoku who are well known, and at least one and possibly three more who signed the same way all working from the mid to the late 19th century. Anyway, this is kind of a sweet carving ( perhaps a sweet oni is an oxymoron ). About 39mm by 34mm by 26mm, light wear and light patina...

If you browse my catalog, you will see that I do not stock a lot of unsigned work. This is mainly because I try to be very selective as to what I sell, if I don't like something, I don't stock it. However when a piece stands out, I can't resist, such is the case with this guy. The work is nicer and more detailed than most, the twisted wire antennae and legs as well as the well executed deep stamping, set it above the rest. I suspect this is pre-war dating to the 1930's given the quality...
