Item # 448Z-Xlg Vintage Navajo Turquoise Coral Inlay Eagle Bolo

164.95

Beautiful extra large vintage Navajo turquoise and coral inlay Eagle bolo! Made with a large thick silver plate cut to resemble a side view of an eagle attempting to catch prey. The silversmith uses seven (7) sections of inlaid turquoise chips along with five (5) sections of coral chips to highlight the eagle's features and using stamping to show movement and added decoration.

The large eagle setting measures 3 7/8" tall by 2 1/4" across and is attached to the black braided leather cord with a BENNETT PAT. PEND. thumb locking clasp. The leather cord is very soft and measures 37" long which includes the new 2 1/4" long sterling silver bench bead end tips. The complete bolo weighs a healthy 41.3 grams (1.46 ounces) and is stamped ED - GERMAN SILVER by the Navajo artist. Not sure why the reason to use German silver, unless the artist wanted to avoid tarnish or customer was allergic to sterling? Made in late 60's to early 70's most likely. The Bennett patent expired in 1969.  $164.95
