Silver Eagle Bolo with Turquoise and Coral

This beauty is a 36" bolo all in soft and pliable braided black leather with silver tips. The centerpiece is a stunning silver (probably nickle) tear drop or egg shaped piece depicting a 2-dimensional eagle in flight with a lovely oval turquoise stone and a smaller round coral stone. The centerpiece is 2-1/2" by 2" and shows that typical stitch style of etching around the whole edge. This piece is not signed, which was the norm for jewelry created by Native Artisans in the 1940s-50s period because many were used as 'pawn' and only passed within the reservation 'family'. Patterns of semi-precious gems are inlaid in silver or nickle in Navajo jewelry as seen here, and also make use of figural animals such as bears, snakes, eagles and foxes. Here we have the eagle. The mechanism on the back works perfectly and holds the tie tight. The bolo is in excellent vintage condition. I think the engraving is called sandcasting from what I could research about the piece.
