Attributable- Lee Edaakie Carved Turquoise Leaf

This turquoise leaf necklace is  extraordinary!  The colour of the turquoise is a more soft green in the turquoise spectrum.  There is a picture in the CG Wallace book with silver work securing another turquoise object very  similar by Lee Edaakie, hence our attribution.  Lee and his brother with worked for CGWallace between 1930-40’s, as did most artisans working for CGW Trading Post he collaborated with other artists during this time.
