Large 3” tall vintage Navajo turquoise nugget cluster bolo tie. The artist has created a convex shaped abstract rectangular setting mounting eighteen (18) beautifully polished blue turquoise nuggets with black matrix. Each turquoise nugget is set into a scallop cut bezel with small silver drops separating each stone from the next. The artist has oxidized the bezels and silver drops along with the silver base creating a black finished background. He has continued decorating by adding sticks of twisted wire and smooth wire encasing the outer rim in a frame like design. Finishing the decoration by adding deep stamping on both sides. The artist has attached the large heavy bolo setting to a soft 4-ply braided black leather cord using a thumb locking bolo clasp finishing by attaching seamed bead end tips.

The turquoise nugget setting measures 3” tall by 1 3/4” across narrowing to 1 1/8” across the bottom. The braided leather cord measures 40” long end to end which includes the 2 1/8” long sterling silver seamed bead end tips. The complete bolo weighs a healthy 62.7 grams (2.21 oz or 2.02 ozt) and is hallmarked E.SPENCER - STERLING by the Navajo silversmith. All the hallmark books we have show the artist as just E.Spencer and he worked for Felix Indian Jewelry in 1976. We have since cleaned the thumb locking tab and the black marks on both side shown in the picture of the back side of bolo setting. Beautiful, large, and heavy vintage Navajo turquoise nugget cluster bolo! $349.95
