Bolo, Inlay Horse, Coordinating Tips, Zuni, Vintage, 1636

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. The statement slide features an inlay depiction of a saddled horse crafted from turquoise, coral, onyx, mother of pearl, and shell in sterling silver. The cord is a traditional braided leather with sterling silver aiguillettes tipped with complementary inlay horsehead dangles. The signature style of these talented artisans is instantly recognizable and has become increasingly coveted and collectible, particularly posthumously.

Lincoln Zunie (1938-1983, Zuni). Active 1960s-1970s. Channel inlay; figural inlay, often horse or cow motifs.  Father of Patty Zunie Edaakie. Brother of Joe and William Zunie. Lincoln Zunie shared the stamp with his wife Helen Zunie (d).
