I love this Navajo style modernist lizard brooch. It is a very flat and thin piece of hammered metal with very cute stamped features and markings. I can’t find out where it originally comes from but I suspect it is an artisan-made piece. Navajo pieces are usually silver but I have tested this brooch and it is not silver. It is a white non-metalic metal, maybe tin or aluminium.
The back of the brooch shows some staining but the front is in great condition. It looks lovely against any colour and could be work on a jacket or coat but is light enough to wear on a jumper, blouse or dress. It is unique and different and has the sweetest face.
Measures 8cm x 5cm at its widest. It only weighs 6 g.
Presented in a satin drawstring bag.
