This superb bolo by Navajo artist Ramon Platero takes the form of a sterling silver rattlesnake entwining itself around two chunks of turquoise. The turquoise is a brilliant blue flecked with bits of mica, suggesting that it might be Morenci turquoise.

Ramon Platero (1954-) is well-known for his fine jewelry and has been working since the 1970's. He is the son of renowned Navajo silversmith Pablo Platero, from whom he learned his art. His work is in the collection of numerous museums, including the Smithsonian, and has been included in many books.

SIZE: 37 inches long leather bolo. The central snake slide is 2" long x 1-3/4" wide. The silver tips are 2-5/8" long.

MARKS: "R. Platero" "Handmade"

AGE: late 20th century

CONDITION: excellent vintage condition with minor signs of wear consistent with age and use. The silver has a dark patina, but could easily be polished.
