A Fred Harvey-era Navajo silver cuff

bracelet set with turquoise and black jet stones, circa 1930’s-1940’s



A wonderful example of a tourist-era Navajo bracelet made with an older-style sensibility, this attractive cuff has a beautiful, hand-cut, rectangular-shaped, central stone of Acoma black jet flanked by two blue-green turquoise cabochon stones with light brown matrix, likely from the Cerrillos mine near Santa Fe, New Mexico. There is wonderful, Fred Harvey style stampwork all over the silver using the typical designs of the period, chevrons, crescents, arrows and thunderbirds.


The bracelet is ¾” wide throughout its length. The inner circumference is 5 1/8”, the gap between terminals is 1 1/8” for a total interior circumference of 6 1/4”.

It weighs a comfortable 30.1 grams/1.06 ounces.

A great-looking, extremely wearable piece from a fascinating and romantic period of Southwestern history, this bracelet was likely first acquired by a traveler on the Santa Fe railroad from a Fred Harvey Company trading post such as the Indian Room at Albuquerque’s Alvarado Hotel or The Hopi House at

the Grand Canyon.
