Hallmarked "Apachito," presumably Joe Apachito, whose style is consistent with this striking work. This squash is NICE. It looks nice and it feels nice. You may have noticed by now that authentic, first-rate squash blossom necklaces are steadily going up in price at an alarming rate. And, old substantial ones like this are just plain disappearing. Get one while you still can. But don't buy a lightweight smaller-sized overseas knock-off! Those have been showing-up on EBay recently. Choose wisely from whom you buy.
