This is an original Harvey Era Thunderbird pin. It has beautiful Navajo stamped arrows at each end. Even the Thunderbird has beautiful stamped feathers on his wings. This is an older pin with a fold-over hook which was made before the manufactured pin clasp. The turquoise is a vibrant blue green color. This pin could be polished up brighter, however I have left the original patina as found.

Fred Harvey operated hospitality stops, hotels and cafes, along the railroads to the southwest. Adventuring tourists brought home the romance of rail travel through the wild west with these keepsakes made by the "peaceful Indians" there. This is truly a piece of American History. Unsigned which is typical of these older pieces.

2 1/8" long x 11/16" wide

Care Instructions

Protect your jewelry from harsh chemicals and solvents as they can damage turquoise and other stones.  I recommend using a Sunshine Cloth or similar to polish your silver.  Do not immerse or subject your jewelry to running water as it can dislodge the stone from the setting.
