Description: This piece is an old pawn piece. The term Old Pawn (aka Dead Pawn) originated from the turn of the last century, as Navajo’s (as well as other tribes) would pawn personal items in trade for supplies. These personal items were very-well made pieces that often would go unclaimed (as pawn is a loan with interest added), which then would be called Dead Pawn. In today’s world, the term Old Pawn is abused by many who call anything old or old-looking, Old Pawn.
The Old Pawn jewelry that I sell is truly a Pawn piece that has gone unclaimed and was acquired from various Pawn dealers that I have forged relationships with over the last 25 years.
This piece is a stunning example of the artistry of the Navajo silversmith. Each piece is handmade out of sterling silver.
