Art, Pyrography, Native American Profiles, Box & 2 Plaques, Vintage early 1900s, 1050

Size Guide

This amazing antique piece is a wooden round that combines carving and pyrography to create a detailed depiction of a Native American in profile. Definitely a one-of-a-kind conversation starter. 

The ancient art of pyrography – literal translation, “writing with fire” – dates back in some Egyptian and African tribes to the beginning of recorded human history.

 As the name implies, the technique involves the intricate use of a heated object (a “poker” or nib) to freehand a design onto another material, most often wood or leather. The designs vary in degree of detail and depth from primitive outlines to elaborate lifelike images, achieved by applying different temperatures or pressures to the medium. Wood pyrography works are then usually colored or painted to complete the aesthetic of the art, and some are even embellished with beads or other adornments for an added element of dimension.

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
