This is a Fred Harvey Era Bell Trading Post Navajo Thunderbird Cuff Bracelet Stamp Decorated Sterling Silver Profusely Decorated. The Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1935 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. They sold Native American Indian jewelry at various tourist locations in the southwestern United States until the late 1980s. The bracelet has the Bell/Sterling with the Bell symbol mark on the back. The sterling silver cuff bracelet has an applied thunderbird surrounded by elaborate punch and stamp work. The patina accentuates and highlights the extraordinary stamp work. The bracelet measures 5 1/2 inches around plus a 1 inch gap for a total of 6 1/2 inches. The width is 1 inch and the weight is 17.7 grams. The bracelet fits my 6 1/4 inch wrist perfectly. There is a little bit of flexibility for size adjustment.
