Most noteworthy, this is an article we wrote back in 2012 for the Antique Register regional Southwest magazine. The Antique Register is a publication about Antiques, which distributes across the Western United States. Consequently, it is an article about Fred Harvey and Fred Harvey jewelry.
In addition, this article describes his influence on jewelry design of Native American jewelry of the Navajo Nation. Consequently, Mr. Harvey credits includes persuading the Native American Indians to make more “Indian” looking jewelry to sell to tourists. Most importantly, the Native Americans are not formerly producing thin silver sheet jewelry with stamping of Thunderbirds, Whirling Logs, Horses or other motifs associated with this type of jewelry.
Most notably, these tourist travel both the Santa Fe railroad and the Route 66 highway. In addition, this jewelry is for sale at Western trading posts and road side curio shops. Also, they sell at the tourist ultimate destinations such as the Grand Canyon El Tovar Hotel. Consequently, we sell Fred Harvey jewelry and Southwest curios at the American Antique Mall, our brick and mortar store in Tucson, Arizona.
