|Oldest Fine Art Gallery in Colorado.|
The 1930’s were a time of economic hardship on the Indian reservations. Among the Pueblo silversmiths it became popular to use pre-cut stones other than turquoise – petrified wood, agates, and jaspers. Some of the smiths worked independently but most worked for the shops or large producers such as Maisels in Albuquerque and Southwest Indian Arts in Santa Fe. The new materials, along with improved tools and techniques resulted in a blossoming of styles and innovation. Filigree work and tiny raindrops, fleur-de-lis designs, and combinations of hard stones with turquoise accents, all were introduced in the 1930’s. Today we recognize that silverwork and attention to detail in these curio trade pieces are truly fine and represent an important period in the history of Southwest silver. Please enjoy our present selection.
