Older vintage Navajo/Bell Trading Co. turquoise arrowhead decorative stamped copper tourist bracelet. The artist has created a copper arrowhead setting mounting in the center a turquoise (could be fake) stone set in a sawtooth bezel and adding decorative tribal stampwork. Mounting the arrowhead to a double slit copper cuff and attaching cast copper decoration to both sides of the arrowhead. The artist continues be applying more tribal stampwork to the cuff. It includes crossed arrows, sunrise, running water (river), arrows shot through a sun, and Thunderbird symbols to name a few.

The tourist bracelet measures 1 5/8” wide narrowing to 7/16” wide at both ends. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 5 1/4” plus a 1” opening. It will fit a 6 1/8” to 6 1/4” wrist as is and can be easily adjusted to fit between a 6” to 6 1/2” wrist. It weighs 24 grams and is stamped with an early Bell Trading hallmark of a BELL encircled with SOLID COPPER. I’ve listed it as a collectable item due to the bracelet being an early tourist item from the Bell Trading Post. Bell Trading Post first opened it’s doors in 1932. We have verified this bracelet being made as early as 1940 (Southwest Silver Jewelry by Paula baxter p133). Nice vintage touristy copper bracelet! $139.95
