RARE 1900s Antique Handmade Sterling Native American Cross Rolling Log Swastika
ROLLING LOG / SWASTIKA. 22 STERLING CHAIN NECKLACE. 16.3g STERLING SILVER. THE SWASTIKA DESIGN INDICATES IT WAS MADE BEFORE 1940. The symbol became a very popular design element representing good luck and was prevalent in period architecture, advertising, jewelry, and on good luck tokens. The Arizona Highway Department even used it as part of their emblem. Because of its popularity, traders encouraged Indian artists to use it on their crafts made for sale to the tourist trade. The design often appeared on silverwork, textiles, pottery, and basketry. Beginning in 1934 East Coast dealers of Indian goods urged reservation traders to discourage native craftspeople from using the swastika as a design element because of its adoption by the German Nazi Party.
