This Navajo sterling silver bracelet dates to the mid-twentieth century and was not signed by the Diné maker.  

A heavy strip of silver was formed in repoussé style to reveal three arched bands, each of which is highlighted by framing lines of exquisite stamp work, but each band left in polished undecorated silver.  It may sound like a simple process but forming the bracelet was anything but simple.

Condition: very good condition with minor surface scratches

Provenance: this Diné Sterling Silver Three Panel Stamped Bracelet is from the collection of a resident of Texas
