    Great Photos but East Coast Bias in Pricing

    I eagerly sped through this book, hoping to find some truly helpful pricing information to go along with the absolutely stunning photos. Unfortunately, Schiffer does not present a very wide sampling of prices. And he totally ignores the silver & copper work of Northwestern Indians. A better title would be EASTERN MARKET PRICES OF SOUTHWESTERN INDIAN JEWELRY. Almost all pieces with prices are from an upscale Pennsylvania store or from other Eastern collections. Prices from Southwestern galleries in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, and California are nowhere to be found. Nor does he offer any photos or pricing from the stores on the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and other Pueblo reservations. No mention is made of the jewelry produced in the Pacific Northwest. These are very serious flaws in a book that purports to represent actual market prices. On the other hand, the beautiful photos go a long way to depict the variety & forms of Southwestern Indian jewelry. It should be enjoyed on that basis alone.
