Hand carved & painted western red cedar plaque titled "Tsul-Ton" Signed by William Bailey, Samish/Upper Skagit Tribe dated April 2013, 18" diameter, Excellent condition.
This necklace makes a statement! 32 inches in length with a 16 inch drop, this heavy Pueblo necklace is loaded with nuggety goodness. Big flat pieces of turquoise are spaced with white shell heishe beads and accented with hefty pieces of spiny oyster shell. A great color combination.
We are not sure of the age but guess this is from the 1960s to 1970s. The necklace is strung on strong linen or cotton cord and has a 4-inch wrapped section...
This contemporary necklace is made from hand-stamped fluted silver beads and comes with a pair of matching earrings with loops for pierced ears. An ideal 18-inch length gives the necklace a drop of about 8 inches when worn—much more comfortable than a traditional choker. We are guessing that this may originally have been a longer necklace that was shortened to make the earrings...
This tiny bracelet offers all the details of the adult-size “tourist” jewelry of the Fred Harvey era, with chevrons, arrowheads, arrows, and other stamped accents. It also has three perfect turquoise stones of a beautiful blue-green with brown matrix.
Inside dimension of the bracelet is only 3-1/2 inches. It is clearly stamped “Sterling” and “Maisels Albuquerque.” Heavily tarnished, so a little cleaning would bring out the patina nicely, but we will leave that up to you...
A beautifully executed pin/pendant combination with hand-etched traditional designs. Sterling silver, signed JP on the back (see photos). The pin is 1-1/2 inches wide and about one inch high, with a slight “wave” shape that really catches the light and adds interest.
Please see both photos for full details.
Navajo artist Sally Black specializes in larger pieces and as a result her work shows wonderful detail. This plaque is a dramatic 21 inches across and shows day and night dancers divided by dramatic lightning or sky motifs.
The plaque is new, made within the last 5 years or so, in perfect condition with string for safe hanging/display.
The motifs on this distinctive bracelet could be Mexican or Pacific Northwest. With its Southwestern provenance we would suppose Mexican or Meso-American influence. The bracelet is one inch wide with an internal measurement of 5-1/4 inches and a gap of 1-1/8 inches. In beautiful condition with great patina.
Clearly stamped “solid copper” with the Bell logo. Please see all 3 photos for more details.

This is a very nice and rare example of the Hopi Sikyachantaka "Guts In The Snow" Kachina.
This Kachina stands 10" high.
The legend is that Guts In The Snow came into existence during a famine after the Spanish had taken the Hopi's sheep. A man killed his cow in the snow and fed the guts to the Kachina dancers.
6.25" long, 3.3" tall, 4.5" wide. Excellent condition, never used in storage since I bought it. This is an finely potted teapot, dating to the late 1990s. This is one of the pots I imported in the late 90s, it has been in storage, some of these potters are no longer working and some of them have greatly increased in value. The frog curiously has one front arm, it appears to have been formed in this way. Yixing pots have a fascinating history and have been exported and admired for centuries...
