We are also very happy to be selling an old collection of beadwork, baskets, cornhusks, horse gear, and other great pieces all collected in the Columbia River Basin in the 50s and 60s. All pieces are documented in the original owner Tommy Thompson's ledger, with interesting notes and stories.

In addition, we have accumulated some really great pieces for this auction! There are more fantastic beadwork pieces, a huge assortment of quality baskets, several high-end Navajo rugs, some very rare old Pueblo pottery, and the best group of NW Coast and Eskimo items we have ever had!

And as always, lots of great Indian jewelry , some really rare original Native and Western art, a collection of Apache items, kachinas carvings, Santa Fe antiques, antique tradebeads, and a number of interesting and hard to find antique, western, and Mexican collectibles - over 800 pieces in all!
