This wonderful old pin is made of turquoise, spiny oyster shell, white shell, and jet in a silver cast base decorated with coiled silver wire and other applied silver pieces. There is a hairline crack in one turquoise piece on the chest, and a small chip in the spiny oyster in the hat which is most likely original to the piece. The tiered head dress and the low placed elongated eyes are characteristics of the work of David Tsikewa. 2 3/4" tall by 1 1/4" wide at arms, about 16 grams.
