We will buy inti re collections and – or estates of Western Americana. We have a large collection ourselves and we often pick several of our own personal items to sell at our online store.

The piece to the left is an Antique Navajo Silver Bridle that was made around 1900 and was well used, most likely by a Navajo who traded for it. This Silver Bridle was made with old Silver coins that were melted down and poured into ingots, they were then pounded out into sheet and then hand stamped and tooled to creat this wonderful one of a kind piece of American history.

We have many other early Antique Western Silver items from the American Southwest that are historic and seldom scene. These type of items are dear to us as we appreciate the history of the region that we live in and have seriously collected historic Silver for over 40 years.

Navajo Jewelry

American Hand Made Navajo Silver JewelryNavajo Jewelry began around 1865 when a Navajo Blacksmith named Atsidi Sani learned how to work with Silver from the Spaniards that came to the Southwest in search of Silver and Gold. Atsidi Sani was the first Southwestern Native American to create Navajo Jewelry. It was just a short period of time until Atsidi Sani incorporated Turquoise into his Silver Jewelry and thus began a long new trail for the Navajo Indians.

We have created a great informational page on Navajo Jewelry and invite you to read more about this wonderful American heritage. The great American Western Frontier is a special chapter in world history and the history of the Navajo Indians of the Southwest plays an intricate roll in this special time in our American heritage.
