The Bell Trading Company was founded in Albuquerque in 1932 by Jack Michelson and his wife. Bell Trading Post was in business from 1932 to 1972 when it closed its doors. This information gives one an idea of the age of this bracelet and where it originated. Its mark and sterling can easily be seen in the photos. The mark showing the bell on a post was first used in 1961 until the company closed in 1972. The bracelet is called "Pretty Girl" style by Dennis June in his book "Fred Harvey Jewelry" and is Navajo in style. The condition of the bracelet is excellent with no damage, and the measurements are as follows: Interior diameter: 2 and 1/4" Gap: 1 and 1/8" Interior taped end to end: 5" Weight: 17.4 grams

There is flexibility in the bracelet so it could carefully be expanded or made somewhat smaller if needed. The bracelet is more substantial in weight than most tourist era bracelets at 17.4 grams, is especially well crafted and in excellent condition. If you like the style of the Fred Harvey era, then this "Pretty Girl" bracelet will make a nice addition to your vintage authentic Southwestern jewelry collection.
