Title:   Navajo Indian Silversmith Plying His Trade Color Postcard

Book Condition:   Very good

Publisher:   Gallup, Bew Mexico J.R. Willis 

Seller ID:   0182

A visually interesting postcard in unused condition. There is a number in the lower right corner -- 1A1436 and at the upper right C.25. Prinred in the dividing line on back are the words "C.T. American Art-Colored." Also on the reverse side there is this description printed above the message box, "Da Pah, a Navajo Indian Silversmith working in his hogan in Gallup, N.M., in which more silver is produced within a radius of forty miles of here than at any other point. His skillful work is done with the primitive tools shown in the picture. His materials are coin silver and turquoise, the silver is heated and then hammered to suit his purpose. Genuine Indian jewelry is much in demand on account of its beauty and original design, there never being two pieces alike." I am not certain of the date, but suspect it's circa 1930 because it came from a lot of Southwest travel material from that period most of which is dated in the early 30's.
