True Antique Native American Dead Pawn Bear Claw Pendant

What is dead pawn?...
Dead pawn is an item that was used at a pawn shop as collateral to secure a loan. When the borrower does not repay the loan according to the contract, the item then becomes dead pawn and the lender is free to sell the item to recover his cost.

Why is Native American dead pawn collectable?
Because, generally true Native American dead pawn items were generally not made to be sold to the public or mass produced. True Native American dead pawn items were made either for the artist’s use or for family or friends. These pieces are much rarer and highly collectable.

This is one of the most amazing pieces I have ever handled! This is an amazing handmade Native American signed one of a kind!

This was originally made into a pendant then later someone added two pins so it can be worn on a shirt also. Except for the pins which show a little rust, the rest of the metal has tested as Sterling Silver. This pendant has a large excellent piece of turquoise, coral and a huge XXXXL faux bear claw.

The pendant is signed Talltree on the back with a pine tree beside it.
The bear claw when measured over the curve including the top setting measures nearly 3 inches long. Not including the setting it measures approximately 2 3/8 inches.
The overall measurements of the pendant are a bit over 2 ¼ inches long and 1 ¼ inches wide.

This piece is an antique and has some soil and tarnish which I believe makes it perfect. However if you cleaned it up, it would surely shine!
