The lot features a circa 1930's Bell Trading Post Sterling Cowboy Pin and Cowboy Chaps Sterling tie clip. Western themed pieces of men's jewelry: a Bell Trading Post sterling Cowboy wearing Concho Laden Chaps lapel pin; and a sterling Western Chaps tie clip. Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1932 and sold southwest style jewelry. Over the years numerous hallmarks were used on items sold by Bell Trading Post and Sunbell. The hallmarks typically included the image of a bell or that of an arrow sign post with a bell sign hanging from it. Both pieces have a rich patina, no damage noted to either. Chaps measure 1"L x 1"W, tie bar 2.25"L Lapel Pin 1.75"L x .75"W
