Description
 
This is a particularly fine bracelet from the early days of the Santa Fe Railroad, Fred Harvey Hotel and Trading Post period. Made in the 1930ís to be sold to travelers on the new highway or rail system running through the Southwest. Shops that produced multiple pieces of the familiar split shank design employed local Native American artists to complete the work. Each artisan was encouraged to use his or her own designs to create a large variety in which to choose from.

The irregularity of the spaces of the stamps and the shank and terminal width variations indicate this bracelet is fully handcrafted.


This lovely silver 1930's bracelet features a greenish/blue, Blue Gem turquoise stone. Fine hand stamp work adorns the frame of the turquoise stone and graces the side terminals. This piece is beautifully aged with a wonderful patina. The overall integrity of the bracelet is excellent. The top width (stone & silver) is 1 3/4" wide tapering to 1" at the bottom terminals. The interior of the cuff measuring 5 5/8" with a opening gap of 1".
