Vintage Native American Turquoise Chip Inlay Teepee Clouds Rain Sterling Silver Pendant Pin Signed TC (Crescent Moon) Thomas Singer Jewelry


Out of stock


For sale is a beautiful Vintage Native American turquoise chip inlay Pendant pin signed with the stamped initial TC, with the C looking like, as it has been described, a crescent moon.

According to the Native American Hallmark directory that I consulted, this is a hallmark of Thomas Singer.

There is chip inlay, the hallmark of Thomas Singers’ work, on the teepee part of the design.

There are a few small areas on the chip work where the surface of the chips is not smooth and flat, but rather is slightly recessed.

The pendant appears to have been made that way, so I assume that this is a natural variation in the chip inlay process.

The stamp work is gorgeous on this pendant. The pendant has a teepee, mountains, clouds and a few raindrops.

It has a pin clasp and a loop on the back for a chain, so it could be worn as a pendant or a pin.

The chain the necklace is displayed on measures 17.5 inches long, and is not included with the pendant, as it is for display purposes only.

The pendant has a slightly domed shape.

This pendant has a nice weight to it, and is on the heavier side for it’s size.

The pendant measures 1 and 7/16 inches across.

There is a layer of natural tarnish on the pendant, which looks quite attractive.

There is some light scratching on the surface of the pendant.

Any purple hues seen reflected in the piece is from my camera, which is a bright purple color.

Please note that the chain the necklace is displayed on is not included with the pendant, as it is for display purposes only.
