Words alone are not enough describe this extraordinary cuff so please take a look at the pictures to get a feel for this magnificent valuable masterpiece of Native American Indian craftsmanship. Fred Harvey Style (1900 1955). You will often see the term Fred Harvey era in many jewelry descriptions. There are estimated to be three distinct periods in the Fred Harvey era of dating jewelry and other Native American art objects. Others may have their own breakdown of these time periods. Early Fred Harvey era: Late 1800s 1910s [rare]. Mid Fred Harvey era: 1910s 1930s. Late Fred Harvey era: 1940s 1970s. Even so, it continued to be produced until the mid-1940s or 1950s. The Bell Trading Co. Continued on until the 1970s. Fred Harvey [1835 1901] was a prominent 19th century Native American curios entrepreneur, business man, hotel and restauranteur who fairly singlehandedly established the emerging 20th century American tourist fascination with traveling to the great American southwest and exploring the culture of Native Americans and their legacy of Native arts, jewelry and crafts. Instead of referring to the tourist jewelry from the era as Fred Harvey jewelry, it has been suggested that railroad jewelry would have been more appropriate as Harvey entered into an ingenious contract with the Santa Fe Railroad to provide a series of luxurious new eating houses along the new rail routes which were quickly crisscrossing the American southwest. Once Indian jewelers and traders realized the Anglo preference, they began catering to the Anglo tourist’s tastes by producing a full line of lightweight jewelry, much of it mass-produced with the help of specialized machinery and commercial sheet silver. There were also numerous silversmiths who insisted on making everything by hand: pounding, cutting, stamping etc. In addition to the consideration of weight, various design elements or symbols were decided upon as standard designs that would decorate most products – the Thunderbird, the arrows (crossed arrows or single arrows), the four-directions symbol, lightning zigzags, arrowheads, etc. It was perceived that these were the symbols that most tourists had in mind as belonging to the Indian realm, and consequently, many Indian jewelers would keep to the use of these symbols instead of adding their own personal touch or incorporating other aesthetics. Today, Fred Harvey era jewelry is Highly Collectible and highly sought after. Easy to wear, and generally with a fair amount of ornamentation/stamping, Fred Harvey jewelry is an enjoyable genre of Indian jewelry that takes us back 100 years and can leave us in awe! This marvelous bracelet is spectacular! It is even more impressive in person than the pictures show! There is some band flexibility for size adjustment. An exact date is not available for when the stamp STERLING was first used on Native American jewelry. Items made in the 1930s would usually not have that stamp nor any other hallmark. A few items made in the 1940s to 1950s might have the STERLING stamp, most notably, those made by Bell Traders during that time period. Pieces made in the 1950s and 1960s and later often have the STERLING indication. Cerrillos is not only an uncommon and unique form of native New Mexican turquoise, but has a history entwined with both ancient Native peoples of the Southwest and more recent American mining companies. Cerrillos turquoise was created and mined under unusual circumstances. It is the only turquoise that formed at the base of a volcano. Thus, a variety of colors developed from the minerals in the various volcanic host stones. In fact, the Cerrillos New Mexico Turquoise mines produce seventy-five colors, from tan to khaki-green to rich, blue-green to bright and light colors. Located ten miles south of Santa Fe, it was the site of the largest prehistoric mining activity on the continent because the huge turquoise deposit was partially exposed at the surface. Miners from the San Marcos Pueblo, who later moved to Santo Domingo Pueblo south of Santa Fe, most heavily worked the mine. Using only stone axes, mauls, antler picks, and chisels, Pueblo miners removed 100,000 tons of solid rock to create a pit mine 200 feet deep. They dug other vertical shafts into the ground to reach veins of turquoise. Miners carried tools and leather rock buckets on their backs as they climbed in and out of the shafts using notched logs as ladders. The turquoise obtained from this hard work traded among early peoples from Mexico to the Midwest and from the east to west coasts. In New Mexico, many pieces of Cerrillos turquoise for personal and trade use have been unearthed in the prehistoric ruins of Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon. The Pueblo peoples continued to extract turquoise from the Cerrillos mine until the 1870’s when a silver mining boom raised interest in the area. This bracelet is filled with elegance and it gives off a timeless look and feel. It is sure to be a great addition to any collection! Words alone are not enough describe this extraordinary bracelet so please take a look at the pictures to get a feel for this magnificent valuable masterpiece of Native American Indian craftsmanship.
