I am the third owner of this rare and amazing collection which has not appeared on the market since 1988. For the very first time, the classic pieces in this historic collection are now being made available for purchase on an individual basis.
Merle Edaakie's work is less well known than that of John Gordon Leak but he is considered a very significant first generation Zuni lapidary artist. Merle Edaakie also worked for C.G. Wallace and his work appeared in the 1975 Sotheby's auction of the C.G. Wallace collection.
