This old locomotive train sterling silver charm is still on its original MAISEL card.
Maisel's Indian Trading Post opened in Albuquerque in 1923 and they sold Native American jewelry and souvenir trinkets at various tourist locations in the southwestern U.S. In 1935, Maisel's merged with Bell Trading Company.
This old figural miniature charm measures 1 inch long by 3/8 inch high. It's incredibly detailed with all the 'bells and whistles' of a real locomotive. The silver hangtag is marked MICHIGAN. (They would sell souvenir charms from all the various states so travelers could bring it back to their home state.)
The card measures 1 1/4 by 1 3/8. It has the MAISEL STERLING SILVER Native American Chief logo on it.
Fred Harvey sold a lot of railroad jewelry at his hotels and trading posts which were alongside the train tracks. These train charms were small enough to bring home as a memento of a great railroad trip.
