History of Bell Trading Post

The Bell Trading Post was located in Albuquerque, NM and was founded by Jack Michelson in 1935. They sold "Indian Jewelry" to tourist locations throughout the western U.S. In 1972 their name was changed to Sunbell Corp.

The items manufactured by Bell Trading Post can be categorized as Indian souvenir jewelry. Unlike items entirely produced and designed by Native Americans, souvenir jewelry has a machine-made uniformity and relatively delicate proportions. The pieces were smaller and lighter. Genuine turquoise was used but also imitated. Some pieces were made of sterling and others base metal. Finally, the designs usually had motifs easily recognized by the tourist: thunder birds, rain clouds, and bows and arrows.

Bell Indian souvenir jewelry has recently become collectible. This type of jewelry brings back fond memories of summer vacations and the flashy items we always tried to get our parents to buy.
