Spirit of Santa Fe: Native American Artifacts and Antiques

james compton gallery

The new gallery at 131 W. San Francisco is a successful change for us. We are offering a great grouping of weavings and objects that span the spectrum from new to advanced collector. With my 30 years of collecting, I’m well versed in the fine details of Native American artifacts and antiques. I am happy to offer my evaluation of any object you might have – 505-699-0323 call or text, or contact me via email. There is no question not worth asking.


I’m excited to share my collection of historic Native American artifacts and antiques at my gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Foremost, I am a collector looking for other collectors. Sharing my items is a great way to learn about the Native story. My goal is to meet and connect with you in a way that promotes our mutual interest in beautiful objects created by those who came well before us.

I offer historic Native American Indian and Spanish Colonial items of the 19th century. Blankets of the Navajo, Pueblo and Rio Grande are a specialty of mine as well as historic Southwest pottery and implements of Native use. I also have a number of American antiques. I encourage you to explore this website and to visit my gallery for a look at some rare items.

I know what it is like to be a new collector curious about the world and its objects. With 30 years of collecting, I am well versed in the pitfalls as well as the joys in making a new find. My collecting has greatly enriched my life with a sense of wonder well beyond the status quo. Collecting has given me a new way of seeing the world. I look forward to sharing this with you.
