Hello and thank you for your interest in our inventory. Today I’m pleased to offer you this BEAUTIFUL Zuni – Ray & Bernice Wyaco, Sterling Silver and Multi Stone Channel Inlay Hopi Bird Bolo. This bolo is inlaid with Turquoise, Coral, Mother-Of-Pearl and brown shell. There is a hallmark on the back that reads RB. This is an early Ray & Bernice bolo. We know this for a couple of reasons. First on the back of the bolo clasp it is stamped BENNETT PAT. PEND C-3. Which was only produced between 1957-1967. Second the brown shell wasn’t used passed 1973. So since Ray & Bernice started making jewelry in the 1960s. We can assume that this bolo was produced in the 1960s to the early 1970s.
