Attributable- Lee Edaakie Carved Turquoise Leaf
This Attributable- Lee Edaakie Carved Turquoise Leaf necklace is extraordinary! The colour of the turquoise is soft green, in the turquoise colour spectrum. There is a picture in the CG Wallace book with the same silver work securing another turquoise object by Lee Edaakie, hence our attribution. Lee and his brother worked for CGWallace between 1930-40’s. Many artisans working for CGW Trading Post collaborated with other artists.
