Sterling Silver Southwestern Style Tree Frog Brooch Jade Eyes Great Falls Metal Works
This unusual sterling frog features two green eyes of jade with cut legs shaped in such a way that this little guy is shouting "I'm about to Jump". The design and placement of the gems within the body of the frog is really well thought out and balances out the piece nicely. The Jade stones are nephrite and are bezel set to the body.
The overall design of the piece mimics some of the work of Navajo Silver Artisans in the west. The frog is signed and the makers mark is for Great Falls Metal Works in Patterson NJ. This company still exists today. According to their site, they started out the business in 1968 and for most of that time have been making recycled precious metal jewelry. Excellent condition, c1970's
