US Zuni 1 – Blue Gem Cuff


FOR THE COLLECTOR! The Indian Arts & Crafts Board mark was the first organized attempt to introduce an official stamp US ZUNI/NAVAJO on handmade Indian silver, a guarantee of authentic Native American jewellery that was made to the highest standards. To receive the mark, the jewelry piece had to be at least 900 parts silver & decorated using “only hand tools“.

This particular hallmark US Zuni 1 was registered to CG Wallace.  He was apparently a bit miffed at not attaining the USNavajo 1 hallmark,  his ex employers Ilfeldt Trading Company Gallup got there first.  Happily CG Wallace did manage to get US Zuni  1 registered to his name.  “We see the US Navajo cuffs but not the US Zuni and not in this condition, so this cuff is very very collectable!”
