Vintage 1950's - 1960's Bell Trading Company Copper and Turquoise "Corinthian" Bolo Tie.
This is a very stunning and stylish piece from the Bell Trading Company's Corinthian line.
Comprised of a long black braided leather neck cord suspending a large round molten copper pendant piece....embellished with abstract pieces of vivid turquoise making for an artistic arrangement. Wonderful combination of rich fiery copper contrasting with serene blue turquoise. The braided leather neck cord is strung or threaded through a two loop fitting in the back of the pendant, which allows the pendant to be pulled up or down and adjusted to your desired position. High quality, and substantial piece. Leather tie is finished with metal (brass tone) aglets.
Copper pendant piece is signed....Solid Copper (Bell symbol in the center) on the back. Bell Trading Company, Albuquerque New Mexico.
Braided leather cord measures 35 inches long. Copper pendant piece measures 2-3/4 inches in diameter.
Total weight is 65.5 grams.
The braided leather cord is nice and tight in the fitting behind the pendant piece (might take a little patience and adjusting to loosen up a bit). Appears to have been tucked away for safe keeping. Striking!
