Large bold vintage 70’s Navajo turquoise chip inlay eagle bolo by William Singer. The silversmith has created a large swooping eagle in an overlay technique. He fills or inlays turquoise chips to fill the voids of the overlay giving it a preserved and highlighted appearance. Instead of leaving jagged and sharp points along the eagle’s wings, claws, and beak he left a rounded surface and oxidized the areas between the wing tips and other. We recently re-oxidized to show full blackened areas. The eagle is connected to the bolo cord with a thumb locking bolo clasp which the thumb set was missing and we installed a new one. The black leather cord displays the fluted bead end tips with decorative stamping.

The eagle measures 3 1/4” tall by 2 5/8” across. The 4-ply black leather cord measures 42” long which includes the 2 1/4” long fluted bead sterling end tips. The complete bolo weighs 45.9 grams (1.62 oz or 1.48 ozt) and is hallmarked SD staggered by Navajo artist William Singer. William is one of the brothers of noted Navajo mastercraftsman Tommy Singer and worked by his side early on in the 70’s-80’s. Guaranteed sterling silver. Large, bold, and beautiful Navajo eagle bolo! $259.95
