Big Zuni petitpoint cluster brooch
Lovely large oval Zuni petitpoint brooch. A classic big old petitpoint Zuni brooch with three layers of turquoise separated by applied silver bump ups or domes. Petitpoint rather than needlepoint as each stone is tear shaped. Circa 1950s, the brooch is set with 60 small natural turquoise stones, many of which have darkened with age. About 3″ wide by 2 1/2″ tall. In excellent old condition, with wear appropriate for its age, and the rolling clasp works well.
