Phenomenal vintage multi-stone mosaic inlay pattern sterling silver bolo pendant. Turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, jet, abalone, cowrie. This early mash-up of Zuni inlay design elements is interesting: There are the upward spread wings of knifewing, the multi-colored tufts of a thunderbird, and the stance of an eagle dancer.
About 2 3/8" wingspan x 2 1/2" tall. Tests positive for sterling silver.
Inlay work shows wear, including a chip on jet on wing. See all photos & inspect carefully. Exact age and origin unknown. No offers accepted at the moment - thank you! Check out my other Native American, Navajo, Zuni, Hopi & Southwestern items.
