Extremely Rare High Grade Bisbee Turquoise Overlay Bolo Tie by Leonard Nez
This early Bolo by Navajo Artist Leonard Nez contains one of the finest and rarest High Grade Natural Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons. The Gem features two gorgeous swirls of Bisbee Blue color surrounded by the wonderful, rich, reddish-brown, chocolate color, matrix characteristic of the Lavender Pit Mine. One of the swirls is a beautiful plain blue with no matrix and the other swirl is termed “Smokey Bisbee”. “Smokey Bisbee” is exceedingly rare and highly sought after by collectors. Having these two kinds of swirls, completely surrounded by the the beautiful “Chocolate” Lavender Pit matrix puts this Cabochon in the rarest of rare categories. Lenard placed the gorgeous High Grade Natural Bisbee Cabochon in a perfect setting. The elegant setting emphasizes the beauty of the Cabochon without overpowering it. The outer edge of the setting has a smooth edge that surrounds the gorgeous combination of of large and small feathers. A second plain edge overlaps the heavy bottom plate then more perfectly cut feathers follow with one side highlighting an Aztec influenced design. A fine hand chiseled bezel holds the large, magnificent Bisbee Cabochon. The Bolo is finished with elegant hand made cylinder tips. One expert thought “This is one of the finest bolos that Leonard Nez has ever made”. I bought this Bolo new, have owned it many years, and agree. It’s one of the “best”!! Full length of the Bolo Cord, Tips included, approximately 44 inches. Bolo size approximately 2 9/16 by 2 5/16 inches. Bisbee Cabochon size approximately 1 7/16 inches by 1 1/8 inches.
