Zuni Inlay Thunderbird Bolo - Pre 1967 - Turquoise & Shell Necklace

Very nicely made between 1957-67, this old bolo has the earlier Bennett patent bolo clasp stamped C-31. Completely hand made with natural stones including turquoise, coral, MOP, and shell, nicely cut to the design and trimmed with twisted wire and drops. The tips are also sterling, and have a stamped design. No hallmarks as was customary, but this style has been attributed to Zuni artist Erwin Edaakie.

Bolo measures 2 3/8" high and 1 5/8" wide. Tips are 2 1/4" high, leather braided strap is original and measures about 39" long including the tips. Estimated weight is 35g tested sterling.

Excellent condition. Appropriate age patina, has not been cleaned or polished. No chips or loose stones.
