Vintage Stacked Animal Fetish Necklace
BBN51 - $125 SOLD
Paula says - "This beautiful full stack necklace was part of a very high quality Native American jewelry collection. However we think this is an imported item, not Native American made so we are putting it in the Bargain Barn with unknown origin.
"To the best of our knowledge it was carved from either bone or some sort of ivory (we did the hot pin test). Very nicely carved animals and kachina - what a variety!"
kachina is 2 1/2" x 1".
A "squaw wrap" is where the ends of a necklace are permanently wrapped together so the necklace is slipped over the head to take it on and off. This necklace has a faux squaw wrap, that is, a tube of material that looks like a wrap has been slipped over the necklace cord. This results in the squaw wrap "look" and comfort but is not an authentic squaw wrap. Read more about the squaw wrap here.
Animals include bear, wolf, fox, rabbit, ram, several types of birds, fish, turtle, armadillo, owl, goat, buffalo and more.
