Large vintage 60's Navajo turquoise coral decorated horny toad/leaf bolo. The silversmith has created a large shield type bolo setting which includes two (2) beautiful cut and polished blue turquoise stone which appear to be from the Turquoise Mountain Mine and a single cut and polished brilliant red piece of branch coral all set into saw tooth bezels. The silversmith also uses a three dimensional (3-D) silver horny toad and a floating silver leaf with two (2) large silver drops. All mounted to an oxidized silver base wrapped with twisted wire along with larger silver drops in each of the four (4) corners of the setting. The silversmith finishes by attaching a BENNETT PAT.PEND. C-31 thumb locking bolo clasp on back. From my understanding the Bennett patent expired in 1969, but the stamped patent clasps were used on into the early and mid 70's. The silver horny toads are almost as hard to find as the actual horny toads these days!

The bolo setting measures 3" by 2" across narrowing to 1 3/4" across the bottom. It's attached to a 37" black braided leather 4mm cord which includes the 2 1/8" long decorative stamped sterling silver beaded end tips. The complete bolo weighs 54.5 grams (1.92 ounces or 1.75 troy ounces) and is unsigned sterling silver. Large vintage bolo with beautiful quality turquoise and solid silver horny toad!  $249.95
