Detailed Workmanship, with a Strong Native American Early Historical Representation

Double Strand of triangular turquoise beads, resembling birds, (?) small seed beads, strung tightly with string, knotted at top.

This extraordinary fetish cannot be mistaken for as anything other than an early Native American artifact, that has recently been brought to light

Each strand is generously 52" around

This is a museum quality item. For a serious Native American collector. History feels good!

Many Native American items from this consignor originate from the Fred Harvey Company Indian Building, Albuquerque, NM.
In the early twentieth century, the Fred Harvey Company (the restaurateur) popularized and developed markets for Indian artisanship. Many artifacts were created in the Indian Building. Upon disembarking at Albuquerque, train travelers passed through the Harvey Indian Building. The first thing they saw was Native American, weavers, potters, silversmiths, and basket makers working for the Fred Harvey Company.

From a Bryn Mawr estate. Look for more items, seen for the first time since packed away in 1920, although purchased years before, leading to that date. Victorian jewelry, Native American trading beads and silverwork, and jewelry from the finest stores on the Main Line, PA. Everything sold as found. See images, ask questions.
