The Silver Fox Collection

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThis collection of jewelry was purchased in 1978 by a professor at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque who was very interested in turquoise and who had intended to start a small business selling Native American jewelry. He bought the items from a friend who worked for Frontier Trading Post and Silver Fox. His plans for a turquoise jewelry business never materialized and the collection has been packed away since then, until we recently obtained it. All items in The Silver Fox Collection are vintage but unused.

NOTE: Items in our Vintage Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos.
