I'm offering for your consideration a wonderful old pair of Navajo salt and pepper shakers from the Fred Harvey era, made of sterling silver and natural turquoise with appliqués of thunderbirds. The turquoise stones measure a bit under 1/4 in diameter. Each shaker measures 1 1/4" tall x 1 1/8" wide.
The pair weighs 30 grams and are unmarked and are unsigned which is usual for that period. The work on them is great with fluted repoussée bases, really great detailing. There are no stoppers but one could make stoppers easily out of a wine bottle cork.
They date to the early part of the century. The condition is excellent vintage, collectible and they are fabulous collector's items. I'd keep them on the table for display or would display them somewhere else. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Take a look at my store.
Yes, I sometimes can take reasonable offers. It's less expensive and is also tracked.
First Class International is no longer offered by the US Postal Service. Please let me know if you would like to return something.
I care that you're happy and about my accuracy, and will always stand behind my work. When I include pages from published books in my listings it is in accordance with Fair Use Law, which permits the use of source material for discussion, reference, education and criticism. Attributions on many of the old pieces of Native American jewelry are sometimes a moving target. All the books have errors, so in addition to counterchecking, I have developed some expertise over the years and I do care about getting it right, so as more information comes to light I update my listings and also get in touch with my previous buyers, to inform them of any changes in attributions. Everything I sell comes from my personal collection or is something that I would include in my personal collection.
I vet every item carefully for quality and condition, and offer you the best. I want you to be able to rely on me for top quality, superb items that are often unique and rare examples of old antique vintage southwest, indian, native american and fine gold and gemstones, whether you're starting a collection or adding to one, or want something great to wear or gift.
My goal is that all my buyers are delighted, that my special pieces find the right homes.
