The wagon holds a lot of history and has strong vibes of the Old West – and this beautiful bolo does for sure! Virgil and Lena Dishta are known for their inlay work which is evident in this piece. The bolo itself is a large round sterling silver piece detailed with an inlay wagon of coral and mother of pearl stones. Sterling silver rope, appliques and drops are detailed throughout bringing it all together. It is placed on a traditional black leather thong tipped in aiguillettes and dangling wagon charms of coral stone.
