This fine vintage bolo tie dates to the 1960's; is hand made inlay work using spiny oyster and pen shell in an 8 point star design. Measures 1 1/2" long, a curved trapezoid shape 1 1/4" wide at the top; has a marked Bennett clasp which dates to 1950's-60's. Condition is very good, there is a small surface chip in the top right corner of the pen shell, next to the silver; please see pictures, it it small. Braided leather cord is black, also in very good condition, with sterling tips with a simple stamped design. The bolo is unmarked; I have tested the metal; it is positive for sterling silver, I have not polished the piece or the tips. There is some green wax residue around the clasp that cleans easily; some can be seen in picture.
