The Fetish CollectionNavajo Pawn Collection

Hidden in a box for many years, these fetish necklaces came to light when Mrs. P was sorting through her late mother-in-law's possessions. We have no information on the artists and whether these necklaces are Zuni or Navajo but Mrs. P says that according to sales receipts, they were purchased "many years ago in Arizona". These items were never worn and some still had the original prices tags on them. Using the prices Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationand artistry as a gauge, we guess these were made some time between 1960-1980. They are very unique and include many animals not often seen on fetish necklaces.


What is a Fetish?

A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Read more about fetishes.

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.
