Featured in this lot we have a sterling silver Fred Harvey era Navajo Native American thunderbird ring. Fred Harvey jewelry was made for the Anglo tourist along the Santa Fe railroad lines, in hotels and retail shops run primarily by the Fred Harvey Company. Harvey hired Navajo silversmith to create decorative symbolized jewelry for the tourist trade. Fred Harvey era jewelry is widely collected and sought after. It is easy to wear, and generally with a fair amount of ornamentation and stamping. This ring features an applied Thunderbird surrounded by detailed stamping. The Thunderbird symbol represents power, protection and strength. The ring is fitted for a US size 6. The ring is stamped STERLING on the inside and has a split on the back (separated for sizing or cracked).
