Being offered is a truly vintage, Navajo Indian crafted jewelry bracelet. This was made of sterling silver with a Cerrillos turquoise stone setting, and is from the Fred Harvey Era, based on the Indian die stamped symbols. The bracelet is in good condition, intact, some age related wearing, but intact and ready to wear. 3/8 wide at its widest portion, the turquoise setting is approx. 7/16" by 1/4", the inside circumference including the back opening is approx.6 1/4, and the back opening is approx. The Fred Harvey Era was during the start of the early tourist travel to the southwest. This started the demand for Native American Indian jewelry in the tourist trade. Fred Harvey set up hotels and motels along cities and train depots to service the travelers. Natives Indians set-up stands and tables to sell their wares to travelers or those just having a rest stop while on the train. Later, roads like Route 66 became the main travel route for vacationers, so tourist shops and trading posts sprung up all along the Mother Road (Route 66). Fred Harvey jewelry was always unsigned except for an occasional piece and is the most collected Indian jewelry today. The designs and styles are unmistakable for Fred Harvey era jewelry.
