Jeweler Unknown

This small round shallow silver dish has scallop edges, designs around the edges and in the bowl, and rests on four very petite silver legs made from traditional Diné buttons.  The tray is not signed with the name of the artist.

Around the edges, mirroring the shape of the scallop is a silver curved line and an inner line of very fine parallel spikes.  The interior of the dish has an elaborate central floral design of four petals anchored by a central square point of a sunflower surrounded by four triangles.  Four designs similar to birds in flight are located between the flower petals. The dish is delicate in appearance and not overly decorated.  

Condition: this Diné Silver Round Dish with Scallop Edges is in very good condition

Provenance: from the extensive silver collection of a client from Washington, DC
