Description
 

This elegant set of serving pieces is hand-wrought sterling silver. Beautifully crafted by Navajo artist Austin or Ike Wilson. Deeply struck stamping graces each end stem and across the center of the spoon and fork. This unused set comes to us, from the family/collection of long time trader Charles Newcomb. Mr. Newcomb was the second owner of the established 1926 trading post, Casa del Navajo in Coolidge, NM. Mr. Newcomb employed Navajo craftspeople to make their creations at the post for tourists and visitors, until the Post burnt down in 1955. This lovely set measures 8 1/4" long, with the spoon portion measuring 2 5/8" wide and fork measuring 2 1/8" wide. Not hallmarked, but has strong attribution to Austin Wilson.

Austin Wilson was active between 1930 and 1950 and was known to have worked at Zuni for trader C. G. Wallace and Trader Charles Kelsey. Wilson's stamp-work was precise with superior craftsmanship in his work. He was a master jeweler from this early era. Wilson was especially known for ashtrays, bar-ware and other decorative utensils.
