This bolo tie features a bear’s paw centerpiece. The centerpiece measures 1.25 inches tall and has a 1/2 inch turquoise stone. The black leather cord measures 36 inches and has silver metal end caps. The slide on the back is hard to move, probably due to lack of use. It works, but is a little stiff.
I purchased it at an estate sale along with about a dozen other bolos that I will be listing. The tag that was attached said “925 Sterling, Turquoise stone”. The piece is unmarked so I did a ‘magnet’ test and the magnet did not stick to the centerpiece, so I took it to my jewelers to ask their opinion. They could not find a marking either, but confirmed that it is 925 silver. They said that in their opinion, it looks Navajo and probably from the 1970s.
I will be listing all the bolos from the sale in other listings. This listing is for the one bolo you see in my photo.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail parcel delivery charges of $7.99. Shipping is from Arizona.
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box or envelope. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. This is what they call their “Delivering for America” plan in which they hope to become profitable. It’s a 10 year plan that started in 2021, so we’ve got years to go with multiple price increases each year. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES: Sorry, I do not ship to locations outside of the United States.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
