Rare vintage 50’s Navajo turquoise and coral decorated bolo. The silversmith has used a high polished, high quality green-blue turquoise nugget with reddish brown matrix and a large stick of coral both set into smooth silver bezels. He continues to decorate with a row of fourteen (14) silver raindrops draping across the top of the turquoise along with row of four (4) silver raindrops separating a hogan button and small silver feather across the bottom at both ends of the turquoise nugget. The artist includes another silver feather to the side of the coral stick along with three (3) silver drops and another hogan button under the coral. All mounted to a blackened silver background with a notched silver wire frame around the outer rim.

The bolo setting measures 1 3/4” b y 1 7/16” across and is connected to the 4-ply braided black leather cord with a BENNETT PAT.PEND. thumb locking bolo clasp. THe cord measures 38” long which includes the new 2 1/8” long bead tipped end tips. We received the bolo setting in very dirty and tarnished conditions with a rotted cord and no end tips. We cleaned the bolo setting and obviously have added a new cord with sterling silver end tips. The complete bolo weighs 34.4 grams (1.21 oz or 1.11 ozt) and is etched with a bow and flights from an arrow. The hallmark belongs to Navajo silversmith Austin Wilson (b.1900-1976) He produced between the 1930’s through 1950’s and worked for C.G.Wallace. We have revived an old collector’s piece so it will see many, many, more years of wear! $219.95
