60s Native American Modernist Cuff/ Charles Loloma School
Out of Stock
These cuffs came from the estate of an important Scottsdale Arizona collector of fine Native American and southwestern piece. She had many pieces by Eveli, a student of Charles Loloma and other fine artists. Various pieces from the collection were purchased at Yares Gallery in the 70s. These are unsigned having only a cursive scratched on W, E or M. I don’t believe these are Eveli but they are by a skilled artist. The two pieces are in excellent condition. The one with turquoise larger cabochons has a matrix/fissure on it in the middle but if you look to the side you can see it isn’t a deep crack, nor something that will fall out. The craftsmanship is so quality and really looking at them they are very true to that school. The pieces reflect the quality a collector looks for from Native American modernist jewelry. Some tarnish is present as I have not cleaned them. The other cuff features large Lapis cabochons as well as turquoise. Circa 1960s-70s. A touch over 5″ circumference on the lapis piece and a 5″ circumference on the other. The lapis has a 1.35″ opening and the turquoise a 1.25″. Width on each is about 1″. Making these a total wrist size of about 6.25″. The smallest one is slightly smaller at about 5.25 with a gap of 1″. My wrist is 6″ and both fit. Each one has a nice solid weight to it. Unisex.
