Morris Robinson Hopi Native American shadowbox pendant
Morris Robinson was one of the earliest Hopi smiths, began making jewelry in 1924, and marking his pieces in the 1930's. He worked off and on until 1987. He was also an innovator and pioneer incorporating art deco styling into his jewelry very early on. He preceded Charles Loloma and Kenneth Begay in becoming the first Native American master goldsmith in the southwest. He was an uncle to Charles Loloma and they are reported to have worked together at times. This pendant is fine work, about 2 5/16" long and 1 5/8" wide at the widest, the turquoise is about 7/8" by 5/8" and looks to be Blue Gem mine. Hallmarked on the back.
