Silver, Copper
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 3.1 x 1.7 cm
Keweenaw Co., Michigan, USA

An EXTREMELY RICH, old-time and sculptural silver-copper "halfbreed" from the famous Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan. Most halfbreeds are less much less than 50% silver, but this hefty piece is at least 75% silver and weighs 49 grams. This fine piece was formally in the collection of George Robinson, currently curator of the Seamann Mineral Museum at Michigan Tech. This is the second and last "halfbreed" piece, that we obtained from George Robinson. It is also the MUCH MORE sculptural of the two. 5.2 x 3.1 x 1.7 cm
