Rare and Unique, Bennie Ration Sterling Silver Feather & Sunface Necklace Native American Indian Navajo Silver Smith. Hallmark: B.R. and Claw Symbol offered by TheJewelSeeker. This is an amazing piece. We researched both the artist and the piece. We could not find anything exactly like this one, but did find one that was a little bit like it. This is a large pendant on what would be referred to the chain as a “feather” chain necklace. The silversmith’s initials are found on the back of the sunface, along with his hallmark claws. There may have been a feather or stone dangling under the sunface, where the loop is, but it also looks like it was meant to be there to look like it is a pendant on the Sunface. The chain ends with a hook on one side. Great southwestern Navajo sterling silver statement neck;ace.
Color: Sterling Silver
Condition: ? Excellent, there may have been something dangling from the circle right below the face (see pictures), we are not sure, because we could not find another of this rare necklace. This is a used, vintage item that will show some wear consistent with age.? We strive to pick the best of the vintage pieces and will make note of any abnormal or stand out issues.
Approx Measurements: 21 1/2″ (10″ of chain on each side, and there is a space between where the chains attach to the pendant that measures 1 1/2″. The pendant measures 3″ in diameter.
Approx Weight: ?99 grams
Approximate Date: 1970s 1980s
Hallmarks/signature:?Bennie Ration signed his jewelry B.R. with what looks like an eagles claws. However this rare piece has both his initials and the claws. We believe this was made in the 1970s 1980s. It could have been earlier. We have no way to confirm this, as we could not find anything exactly like this one. Very cool rare piece of jewelry!
