Identify this old Zuni bolo


#1

This bolo has a bennet pat pend c31 clasp which was first used in the 1950s. the bolo has wear that suggest it would have been made in 1950s - 1960s. a classic zuni channel inlay style, very good design, it appears to be made by capable artists, which leaves me to wonder what great Zuni artists made it, any ideas.


#2

I have a very similar bolo that was purchased in Tucson in the very early 1970’s. It also has a Bennett clasp. I recently saw on an on-line auction a pin that was smaller and it was signed V & S Benn. It is my understanding that they did not sign their very early work.

We have seen this before, Joe Zunie possibly, will do a little more research.
