Beautiful vintage 40's-50's Zuni multi stone inlay Knifewing bolo. The Knifewing consists of eight (8) sections with stone-to-stone inlay of yellow shell, brown shell, white shell, jet, turquoise, and coral. Each section is set into a saw tooth bezels. The artist highlights and decorates with long smooth wire earrings and multiple silver bead decoration throughout. The back side shows a possible repair by attaching an extra silver base with a newer thumb locking bolo clasp, cord, and end tips. This could possibly be a conversion from a brooch/pin to bolo?

The Knifewing deity measures 2 1/4" tall by 1 3/4" across and is attached to the 4mm black braided leather cord with a thumb locking clasp. The leather cord measures 36" long which includes the 1" long hand made sterling silver beaded end tips. The complete bolo weighs 28.2 grams and is unsigned Sterling Silver. I researched the Knifewing and it shows consistencies with similar Knifewing artwork made in the 40's-50's by Yelmo/Betty Natachu and Alonso Hustito. Beautiful vintage Zuni crafted Knifewing bolo!  $269.95
