Need help identifying tribe/maker

Postby infoseeker1957 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 6:20 am

Hello. I am assuming this piece is Native American. It is very heavy for it's size, approximately 70 grams. The hallmark looks like an upside down J with a dot above the hook followed by the numbers 90 and sterling. I would really like to know something about the artisan if possible. Thanks for your help.

It looks like Felley Inc. You can search this site with that name and find a little more about them.

Yup, Felley, a Southwest manufacturing comany, the 90 is the year it was made. I have the matching pendant.
