Antique Indian Silver Jewelry – Fort Defiance Collection
One of the great Antique Indian Silver Jewelry collections we were fortunate in landing was the Fort Defiance Trading Post collection. One fall day in 1982, I was sitting by the fireplace in my Trading Post when Francis Griswold walked in, what a historic day for me! That day led into me purchasing the largest Antique Indian Silver Jewelry in the history of the Southwest. I ultimately purchased over 3000 antique Rings, 800 Bracelets and a load of other Antique Indian Jewelry that had been in the Fort Defiance Trading Post vault since the late 1920’s – it was unreal! Francis was a very early Indian Trader who owned Fort Defiance, Chilchimbito, Wide Ruins and several other Trading Posts from around 1910 until about 1955 when he went into prison.
