Description
 

The Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild organized in 1941 in Ft. Wingate, New Mexico, and started as a co-op in Pine Springs, Arizona, in 1942, the Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild is wholly owned by the Navajo Nation and has been creating jewelry, arts, and crafts for over 70 years. Some of the silversmiths that helped form the guild were, Ambrose Roanhorse, Chester Yellowhair and Fred Peshlakai. Now silversmiths had a marketplace to share their acquired skills. In the 1944 book, “The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths”, John Adair writes, “The type of silverware that the guild promotes is a revival of the old simple types of jewelry, without sets for the most part. Emphasis is placed on cast work.

This unique bolo measures 3" long by 2 1/8" wide. The bolo and hand crafted tips have a great smooth patina from age. The black leather is 42" long, including the 3 1/4" tips. The piece is signed with the official Horned Moon, Guilds hallmark and NAVAJO. A very collectible bolo, that looks wonderful on!
