Fred Harvey was a Genteman restaurateur, a pioneer in the late 1800s. On a handshake deal with the Santa Fe Railroad, he built an empire the envy of his time. After his passing, around 1900, his gift shops began selling a “new kind” of jewelry, some of the early mass produced variety.
Made of Coin Silver (and later Sterling), like the Native jewelry of the time, this “Railroad jewelry” suited the tastes and pocketbook of rail travelers. All of the details are explained in book entitled “Fred Harvey Jewelry, 1900-1955,” which is included at no extra charge for the buyer of this great FH bracelet specimen.
The bracelet is quintessential Fred Harvey, with ARROW motif, described in the book. About 1/2” at widest, and tapered. Cerrillos turquoise in bezel cup.
