Bolo, Inlay, Horse, Mixed Stones with Matching Tips, Trader's Code, Vintage, 1956

No reviews

The renowned Zuni artisan was most active with her craft from about 1940 to 1970, making all of her pieces remarkable and valuable vintage finds and this beauty is certainly a stunning one. The statement slide features a depiction of a horse profile crafted in an inlay design using shell, turquoise, black onyx, and coral, framed in sterling silver. The cord is a traditional braided leather, but tipped with exceptional aiguillettes that feature miniature complementing inlay horse heads. A classic collectible!

Nora Leekity: (Zuni) Active 1940s-1970s. Channel inlay; horses, cows.
