Bolo, Inlay, Novelty, Black Angus Bull, Helen & Lincoln Zunie, Vintage ‘70s, 1430

Size Guide
A BOLD BOLO CAN ADD A LOT TO AN OUTFIT.

This beautiful vintage bolo is the work of renowned jewelry artisan couple Helen & Lincoln Zunie, well known for their inlay work, usually in cow and horse motifs. Dating back to the 1970s, the slide features a depiction of a black angus bull beautifully crafted in chip inlay style using stones of turquoise, mother of pearl, black onyx, and coral, set in sterling silver. The cord is a traditional braided leather with sterling silver aiguillettes. The signature inlay of these late artisans has begun to be recognized and sought after posthumously, so their work will be collectors.
