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. The success of today's American Indian silversmith follows a pathway blazed by the silver Indian jewelry makers that came before--those who brought the raw silver, channeled it, worked it, and made it profitable. In a large sense, the Fred Harvey name built the structure upon which many of today's Southwestern Indian silver and art traditions survive. This book's comprehensive study utilizes several private collections and hundreds of specimens, the best of which were painstakingly measured, weighed and photographed for the book. With nearly 100 images of SW Indian jewelry supplemented by early 1900s Harvey Company Photostint postcards, this book paints a vivid and colorful picture of life in America's southwestern frontier. Included is a significantly researched timeline and 'tips & tricks' to clarify the historical subject. The many conjoined facts and historical research discoveries provide a fresh vantage from which to understand the complex world of early silver Indian jewelry and its champion, Fred Harvey Jewelry. 166 illustrations
