Paula says - "The nuggets are bold and beautiful natural turquoise graduating from 3/4 x 1/2 inch¯ at the center to 1/2¯ x 3/8 inch¯ at the ends. I call the white shell kernels¯ because they are used to symbolize corn.

"This piece is NOS (new old stock) that was made in the 1970s but was never used - it is brand new vintage!

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThe Silver Fox Collection

This 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. Vintage Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.
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.
