Zuni Thunderbird Bolo Tie

$45.00
Quantity available: 1

This bolo tie has a Zuni thunderbird with 3 tail feathers. There are features similar to work by three families but it is genuine, and dates to around the 1940's. The letter "R" is etched on the back. This could be a trader or an owner's mark and may not be the artist's mark. It measures just over 1" high and 3/4" wide, and has a 30" thin leather braid with silver tips. These are the original old tips and once had silver balls on the ends. When I got it, one ball was already gone, and the other one was barely hanging on so I removed it, but it is included. I did notice that the tips are not even. One is a little bit longer than the other, and the markings, while the same, do not evenly line up. I don't know if it is because they made different sizes, or that this is just because they were all individually hand made. (1/11/17)
