Navajo Natural Turquoise and Heishi Necklace, c. 1940s-50s, 32

Navajo Natural Turquoise and Heishi Necklace. 1940s-50s / 32 / 116 grams.

Acquired from an old family collection in Florida. The owner inherited the collection from her mother, aunt, and grandmother, who were all collectors and admirers of Native American antiques.

The grandmother grew up working on a ranch in New Mexico. She later took a job near Silver City, but contracted typhoid. At the time, there was not much for the doctors to do, so she was sent home. Her mother nursed her back to health, and she later married and had 2 children, proving the impossible to the doctors. In 1942, she was the County School Superintendent in Fort Sumner. In 1945, she was in charge of teacher certifications with the State of New Mexico Department of Education in Sante Fe. The aunt was also a teacher, and many of the students were Native Americans. Medicine Man Gallery has been in the Antique Native American art business since 1992.
