Old Zuni eagle bolo
Great older Zuni inlaid bolo in the form of a bald eagle holding a snake, with matching tips of full smaller eagles. Dating this to somewhere in the 1940s. It originally had a handmade clasp, later converted to a Bennett (Pat Pend, C-31) clasp. Solid, well-done inlays of jet, natural turquoise and white shell, left just rough enough to be interesting. The central eagle measures about 2 1/4″ tall x about 2 3/8″ wide. Each eagle tip measures about 1 1/8″ tall x 1 1/4″ wide. In good old condition with wear and bits of soil stuck in corners.
