Product Description

Rare and very hard to find vintage handmade Native American Zuni inlay and Navajo silver box. This box has a good solid provenance. C.G. Wallace was the original owner of this high quality and wonderful little box. It was then purchased by Lynn Trusdell at his Sotheby auction who recently past away.

Native American handmade boxes such as these are simply put, very scarce. The collectors that have them just don't want to let them go and they just don't make them like this anymore.
