The slide on this unique vintage slide appears to be a collaboration or an adaptation. The inlay roadrunner has been identified as the work of the late Theordore Edaakie, an early silversmith and artist for C. G. Wallace; crafted in channel inlay style using stones of turquoise, red coral, mother of pearl, black onyx, shell, and tortoise shell, all set in sterling silver affixed to an interesting openwork circle slide with silver leaf appliqué. The cord is a classic braided leather with sterling silver aiguillettes.
Theordore Edaakie (1911-1987; Zuni). Active 1930s - 1960s. Silversmith and artist. Channel inlay; some bird and eagle dancer motifs. Worked for C. G. Wallace in the 1930s; his brothers Lee (1914 - ?) and Merle (1904 - ?) also sold their jewelry through the C. G. Wallace operation
