Navajo Old Pawn Squash Blossom Silver Necklace From Illinois Museum Closing For Sale
NAVAJO OLD PAWN MERCURY DIME-WALKING LIBERTY HALF SILVER SQUASH BLOSSOM NECKLACE FROM ILLINOIS MUSEUM CLOSING
GOT A NUMBER OF ARTIFACTS, MOSTLY POTTERY, POINTS, AXES AND CELTS, FROM THE DISPLAYS AT THE OLD BARN MUSEUM IN NEWARK, ILLINOIS. THIS PRIVATE MUSEUM WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1972 BY THE LATE HOWARD CHRISTENSEN (WHO'S WHO NO. 7) AND IT WAS OPEN TO VISITORS FOR THE LAST TIME ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 28, 2012. MANY DISPLAY ITEMS WILL BE DONATED TO OTHER HISTORICAL MUSEUMS IN THE AREA, AND SOME WILL BE SOLD. FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN ABLE TO FIND OUT, THIS TYPE OF SILVER AND TURQUOISE NECKLACE IS REFERRED TO AS NAVAJO OLD PAWN. THIS EXAMPLE IS MADE UP OF 60 BEADS WHICH HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED OF 120 SILVER MERCURY DIMES DATING IN THE 1940'S AND 8 "BLOSSOMS" MADE OF WALKING LIBERTY SILVER HALF DOLLARS DATING 1941-1946. THERE IS A LARGE "NAJA" AT THE BOTTOM INLAID WITH A SINGLE TURQUOISE CABOCHON. THE COMPLETE NECKLACE IS HEAVY WEIGHING IN AT 15 1/2 OZ. THERE IS NO TOUCHMARK THAT I CAN FIND. THOUGH A LITTLE TARNISHED, THE CONDITION IS EXCELLENT. COMES WITH A SIGNED CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN FROM THE MUSEUM. THIS IS AN IMPRESSIVE PIECE OF ARTWORK.
