Vintage Zuni Inlay Bolo - Knifewing Design - Circa 1950s - 60s


Maker: Appears to be vintage Zuni made, however, there are no hallmarks (as was common of Native Jewelry made in this era). 

Approx Age: Vintage, circa 1950s - 60s. Has old-school loops on the back for the cord to run through (like was common before pre-clasp use). Some artists continued to use this old-school style of securing the bolo cord even after the commercial clasps became available in the mid-1950s and this is likely one of those pieces. 

Size:  Overall width of the slide is about 2" x 2" (longest points). It's on a 39" braided leather cord with sterling tips. Weighs 28.1 g.

Additional Info: Sterling silver slide features a Knifewing design in multi-stone (turquoise, onyx, spiny oyster and MOP) inlay. Cord is braided black leather with sterling silver tips. Tested as sterling silver.

Condition: Vintage. Normal wear expected.
