Vintage Native American Squash Blossom Necklace and Jacques Gabriel Painting Come to AuctionJan 30, 2023 18:00 EST
Leading Orion Antiques’ New Beginnings auction is a vintage Native American squash blossom necklace. The sterling silver neckpiece comes with 11 U.S. Morgan dollar pendants. The pendant has an ornate border with stars and an image of Lady Liberty. According to the lot description, the chain with hook clasp is in a good condition. Once a symbol of wealth and status, the first squash blossom necklace was likely made in the late 1870s or early 1880s by the Navajo people. Typical features include silver beads with a horseshoe-like pendant at the bottom called the Naja.
Another significant lot in the upcoming sale is the canvas artwork Walking in Public by Haitian painter Jacques Gabriel (1934 – 1988). Born in Port-au-Prince, Gabriel studied at the New School for Social Research in New York. His works have been showcased in America, Italy, Jamaica, and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. Other significant lots in the event include a vintage Egyptian 900 silver round tray, a semi-antique Gabbeh tribal rug, a Chinese Ming-style pedestal stand, and more.
