Large detailed vintage Hopi Snake Dancer silver overlay bolo. The silversmith has created a detailed snake dancer that displays the dancer holding the rattlesnake in his mouth with the tail in his hand right above the rattle. The dancer has a feathered headdress, armbands, wristbands, necklace, loincloth, sash belt, and mocassins. The artist has overlaid multiple pieces on a smooth black oxidized base to display such detail. Very tedious workmanship! He finishes by attaching a bolo thumb locking clasp on back and installing a 4-ply braided black leather cord along with beaded end tips.

The Snake Dancer measures 3 3/4" tall by 1 7/8" across. The cord measures 44" long which includes the 1 7/8" long sterling silver bead tipped end tips. The complete bolo weighs 47.7 grams (1.68 oz or 1.53 ozt) and is hallmarked N.S. with makers mark by the silversmith. It's either Hopi or Navajo made and guaranteed sterling silver.  $269.95
