Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Collector Bookstore Notes: This title showcases stellar Navajo and Zuni silver and turquoise, Hopi silver and Pueblo stone and shell jewelry from the Millicent Rogers Museum Collection of Native American Indian jewelry. Publishers Description: ART PATRON MILLICENT ROGERS was a passionate collector who assembled a stellar collection of Navajo and Zuni silver and turquoise, Hopi silver-work, and Pueblo stone and shell jewelry during the late 1940s and early 1950s when fine late nineteenth- and early- twentieth-century work could still be found. Her collection provided the foundation for what has become one of America's most important repositories for the aesthetic achievements of Native American jewelry makers in the Southwest. The Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos, New Mexico, honors the memory and creative life of Millicent Rogers and holds the majority of her personal collection of some 3,000 pieces, assembled during the time of her residence in Taos from 1947 until her untimely death in 1953. Oil heiress and fashion icon Millicent Rogers left the glamorous world of couturiers and the pages of Vogue to establish herself in Taos and to embark, despite failing health, on a robust path both to collect Indian and Hispano arts and crafts and to champion the distinctive importance of Native culture. A famous model and clothes designer in her own right, she also possessed a gift for jewelry collecting and designing. Fine Indian Jewelry of the Southwest presents Rogers's collection through her New Mexico experience, bringing to life the Taos she discovered and showcasing the authentic, classic era jewelry that she collected at a time when Fred Harvey and others were popularizing Indian made tourist pieces. The Millicent Rogers Museum has continued to collect Indian jewelry since Millicent Rogers's death, and the book includes striking examples of contemporary Navajo and Pueblo jewelry that, along with the Rogers collection, will serve as a solid overview of Southwest Indian jewelry from prehistory to the present.
