**Paul & Helen were collectors of fine American Indian Artifacts, Rugs, Jewelry, and Pottery. They traveled in the Southwest and amassed this nice collection from reputable dealers and galleries. They were serious collections as evidenced by the fact that many of the original tags and receipts are still with these rugs! These items are not from just any ordinary souvenir shop!
