Paula says - "In my opinion, this spoon shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because it doesn't have a hallmark that we can attribute to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more."
|These miniatures are getting extremely difficult to find. They are entirely handmade with hand stamping. See others in the group to make up a set.|
Photo above has a paper clip that shows the scale of these detailed miniatures. The largest dimension on any of these miniatures is 1 1/4".

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.
