An adorable Corn Maiden pendant carved from a lettered olive snail shell. She looks like a chubby wee baby, all tucked up in her corn husk mantle. She has painted details and wears a tiny turquoise upon her breast. A tiny letter "Q" is carved on her backside. The Maiden has a silver wire bale with turquoise nugget beads. She hangs on a modern sterling silver cable chain. Circa 1970.

Across Native American cultures, the Corn Maidens symbolize the prayers of the people for a bountiful harvest.

Details.....The chain is 18" long. The Maiden measures 0.58" by 1.27", 1.77" with bale. In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should expect some wear on all vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
