Vintage 1960's Bolo With Large Kings Manassa Turquoise
Beautiful Vintage Bolo with large piece of Kings Manassa Turquoise from Southern Colorado. No Hallmark but hand written information says "Sioux, Mary Ellen Coleman". The piece looks Navajo to me with large Sterling Silver leaves and flowers surrounding the Turquoise. Stones from the Kings Manassa Mine are very hard to find. One this size with beautiful color is quite a collector's piece. Stone measures 2" tall by 1 1/2" wide. Overall including the Sterling Silver work surrounding the stone, it measures 2 1/2" tall by 2" wide. New 42" braided leather tie includes Sterling Silver Tips.
