A beautiful vintage piece dating from the 1960's - 1970's.
Michael Thomas, Jr. was a well know Navajo silversmith with featured pieces in many of the prominent galleries throughout the southwest. His father, Michael Thomas, Sr was also a silversmith.
I was unable to get a photo of the hallmark as it under the bead loop on the naja.
The piece has not been polished - that I leave to the buyer as some do not want vintage pieces polished.
Questions are always welcome.
