Paula says - "These used to be called stamp boxes as they were made for small size postage stamps printed back in the day. Now they are used more for aspirin.

"I've seen identical boxes that were and made by Navajo silversmith Elizabeth Whitman and stamped with her mark E.M.W. This box has no hallmark."

"Are you wondering why this item is not described as Native American? You can find the answer by clicking here."

Store Policies

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
