RARE! Vintage 3-D Hopi Sterling Silver Guild Kachina Headdress Bolo Tie

Vintage BOLD large Native American indian sterling silver bolo tie- raised 3 dimensional kachina or hopi dancer face. Very unusual exquisite delicately cut out three dimensional overlay form, raised face (slightly curved so the piece is not totally flat), delicately cut feathers and feather headdress. All the classic Hopi overlay cut out designs are here. This does not have the Bennett type bolo tie clasp in the back, but has the more traditional hand made double ring. The artist's maker's signature hallmark is the Hopi Silvercraft Guild mark- it is an embossed sun although it only shows the top half of the sun face (like a sun's forehead), as the mark is also close to the lower edge. This is typical as each silversmith at the Hopi Silvercraft Guild had their own distinct version of the sun face.
