Quilled Peace Medal Chain Necklace
Reproduction Thomas Jefferson Bronze Peace Medal Chain Necklace with Quilled Panel made by me in 2016 with the substantial contribution of Czech artist Ivo Frydrych (quilled panel) after a notorious specimen from Smithsonian Museum which is believed to have belonged to Arapaho chief Powder Face (1830–1886). Just for demonstration, not for sale (unless I would be absolutely compelled by your irresistible offer).

☩ I've been searching through museum items, old phtographs, books, auction catalogs, but I failed to find any interesting specimen of Peace medal necklace challenging enough to be replicated. 99.9% of them are just a medal suspended on a silk ribbon, leather cord or chain without any additional device that would transform a white man's gift into a absolutely Indian jewelry piece and, at the same time, the medal would remain a separate item, not competely incorporated into another, as in the case of Grizzly claws necklace, breastplate and alike. It seemed strange to me, because it is well known that since the first contacts with the Spaniards in the 17th century the Plains Indians highly valued this stuff, and had an opportunity to ap-propriate it in some way, i.e. to give it the features of an aboriginal Indian ornament. The only suitable candidate for this role was Arapaho chief's Powder Face medal necklace from the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian (inventory number 241965).
☩ «Quilled Peace Medal Chain Necklace» (SKU 2540.16.01) in the first instance is a highly valuable item from my personal collection, where I gather the best specimens of Indian Warrior art and do not have much desire to part with them, so if I sell, then at a price that is listed here as the minimum fair for of this work.
