    SOLD!  Fetish animal symbols and carvings are generally the purview of Zuni artisans, but other tribes delve in them as well, including the Navajo.  The bear is prominent in this art form because Native Americans associate the bear with healing.  The fetish bear here is made by Rosita Singer and some of the Singer family after the passing to the other side of Tommy Singer ten years ago.  Not counting any part of the 9/16th's inside-diameter bale it is 1.25-inches.  Width is 1 and 7/8th's-inches.  Weight is 9.6-grams, or 1.34-ounces.  Hallmarked "T&R Singer."  It ships with an 18-inch, solid Sterling silver box chain.  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
