Thunderbirds and arrows are among motifs usually associated with the so called Fred Harvey genre of jewelry crafted specifically for period visitors. This, however, would not be a typical example within that category. Think wearable artwork instead - a visually charismatic Southwestern statement on the neck of some long gone Old Pueblo mover and shaker in its day and potentially on yours right now. Weight is good for the form at about 23.5 grams for the silver only - 31.9 grams with the cords. Condition is quite fine and pretty much as crafted, with a deep aura of time to the silver.
The turquoise is nicely preserved. Some minor surface oxidation to the friction type fitting from that slumber in a drawer is mentioned for accuracy.The unused plaited cord still has its original taped ends. The overall impression is of something well chosen in the long ago and never committed to any service. A look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition.
The thunderbird slide ornament is about 1 3/4 in. Vertical and 1 19/32 think 1 5/8 in. The silver cord tips are about 2 1/4 in. I don't know what else need be said, so there you are.
