Mark Chee Stamped Navajo Silver Cuff

Mark Chee

Mark Chee Stamped Navajo Silver Cuff

Mark Chee, Navajo (born early 1900's) from Lukachkai, AZ, moved to Santa Fe and began his career by polishing stones after attending boarding school. He became a well known silversmith, working as a benchsmith for Frank Patania as well as Al Packard. Mark worked from the 1930's to 1960's, and his jewelry is easily recognizable by its heavy silver, stampwork, set stones and the stamp of his last name Chee in a bird (as shown in photo above). In addition to wearable jewelry, Mark also made silver flatware sets. Upon close examination the cuff seems to have been constructed in three pieces having a 3/4" piece on each end. This cuff measures 1 7/8" thick. The inside circumference measures 6 7/8", the gap between terminals is 1 1/4", the exterior dimensions across are 2 3/16". Approximately 5 ounces. In very good wearable condition.  No damage or loss to silver - no chips or cracks.  Crisp & clean!  Normal overall wear commensurate with the age of the piece.  Please study the photos as they are a part of the description.
