Native American Horse Hair Trinket Box 5.25" -Navajo (171bc20)
This charming 2-piece jewelry or trinket, square shaped box, is an authentic Navajo horsehair work of art.
The artist uses real horsehair during the firing process to decorate the rustic figure by throwing the pieces of horsehair onto the pottery at just the right time, causing it to stick and melt into the piece. This becomes a permanent application of the horsehair to the pottery and yields the famous look that has become so popular.
Each piece is unique; no two are exactly alike. This hand etched piece is perfect for any southwest style or western décor and makes a special gift.
Actual trinket box shown, measures approximately 5.5" long, 2.25" wide and 2" tall.
