This striking bolo tie is marked ML for Melinda Lucas, the Hopi silversmith who made it. It is made of sterling silver, as are its tips, and the clasp is marked Bennett Pat. Pend. C-31, which dates it to the late 1950's up to the middle 1960's. It features an abstract design made using the overlay method, and it is set with a single cabochon of turquoise. This piece is in very good to excellent condition, with a smooth finish, a new black leather tie, and no damage or problems with any of its parts. (Any dark areas that you see in the photos are reflections on the silver, and not actual marks.)
The centerpiece of this bolo measures 2 1/4 inches at its tallest area by 1 3/4 inches at its widest point, and the tie is 35 inches long, not including the tips, which are each 1 3/4 inches long. The Lucas family is well-known among Hopi jewelry collectors, and this piece would be a great addition to the collection of any lover of Native American bolo ties!
