ABOUT THE PRIVATE COLLECTION:

This private collection of Authentic American Indian Art was owned by my parents, Robert (Bob) and Cozette Reichle. In the 70's and 80's they made numerous trips to New Mexico and Arizona where they purchased the pieces directly from either the Indian Artists or their Trading Partners. Atkinson Trading-Co., Inc Gallup, NM; Turquoise & Hesche Craft Pena Blanca, NM; The Pueblo Of Zuni Zuni, NM; Zuni Craftsmen Cooperative Association Zuni, NM; Gallup Indian Trading Co. Gallup, NM; Minnie-Haha Indian Traders Gallup, NM; Hawikuh Trading Post Zuni, NM; Tsabetsaye Enterprises Zuni, NM; Thunderbird Supply & Jewelry Co. Gallup, NM; Galanis Trading Co. Gallup, NM; Tobe Turpen's Indian Trading Co. Gallup, NM; Lone Mountain Turquoise Co. Vanderwagen, NM; Hubbell Trading Post Ganado, AZ; Bish-La-Kai Trading Company Gallup, NM; Gila River Arts & Crafts Sacaton, AR are some of the Indian Traders they purchased their collection from. Later they opened and ran "The Little Indian Shop" in Lincoln, IL. where they displayed their collection and sold Indian Artifacts. They are listed on page 71 of "Zuni The Art and The People" Vol. 3 under Jewelry Shops. If you are a collector, you are looking at real authentic Indian Art. Most of the pieces in the collection have out lived their maker.
