This solid copper pendant necklace was made by a Native American craftsperson and sold by the Bell Trading Post.
Bell Trading started in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1932. They sold Native American Indian jewelry at various tourist locations in the Southwestern United States until 1972.

This totem pole pendant is a stylized version of actual totem poles which were monumental sculptures carved on poles, posts, or pillars with symbols or figures, by native tribes people of the Pacific Northwest coast of North America (northwestern United States and Canada's western province, British Columbia). The carvings may symbolize or commemorate cultural beliefs that recount familiar legends, clan lineages, or notable events. The poles may also serve as functional architectural features, welcome signs for village visitors, or as an homage to ancestors.

This totem pole pendant measures 1 3/8 by 2 3/4 inches. It's 1/2 inch thick. The copper has a warm glowing patina with oxidized darkened recesses. The original chain measures 24 inches long with a secure foldover clasp. Necklace weighs 47.2 grams.

This is an unusual Native American Bell Trading Post souvenir...a rare Totem Pole figural and made of solid copper. Marked on the back with the Bell post sign hallmark. Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1940s.
