Bracelet made of silver with four oval turquoise set in a row and placed centrally, and some stamping on the silver. The stamping is irregular. On the inside of the bracelet are cracks and bubbles, probably because the bracelet is made of rolled, but not properly annealed, ingot. There is a label on the inside of the bracelet of red colour and with "255" on it, and another one with "early".

- Curator's comments
- The bracelet is probably an early example of Navajo silversmithing, although the turquoise seem as if there are newer than the bracelet. The "525" on the back is known to be one of the numbers used by CG Wallace in his trading store in Zuni.
