Vintage Julia Etsitty Bolo Tie Southwest Navajo Sterling Silver Turquoise Coral
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage sterling silver bolo tie made by Navajo silversmith Julia Etsitty. The ornamental clasp slide is made in a trapezoid shape and has both a turquoise and a coral stone set in it. The silver is worked with rays emanating out from the stones in the centre of the piece. The back is stamped “Julia Etsitty Sterling”. The tie is made of braided black leather and there is a silver aiguillette at either end, each aiguillette made in an elegant tapered shape with a ball tip. The tie has a “fall” of 19 1/4”. It is in very good condition with no signs of wear except that the ball tip on one of the aiguillettes is a little dinged and slightly crooked, but could easily be straightened - the slide is locking and working well. This is a wonderful bolo tie - Julia Etsitty produced excellent silver work!
