Would love to know more about this huge cuff!

This huge cuff is so interesting to me. The only thing I can find is that it has been scratched on the back G. Brown 76. It’s 4 inches tall and over 2.5 inches wide. Can anyone tell me what the design is? I’m new to all of this, but this one really fascinates me. I would never wear it (I’m really tiny, and I like tiny jewelry) so I would like to find it a good home, but someone who really appreciates it. I don’t know even know where to start.

Definitely looks Zuni with all the inlay work, but I am not expert by any stretch. The design looks like a Kachina dancer of some sort (don’t know enough about the various dancers to know which one). It is a beautiful piece. The Zuni’s did scribe in their hallmarks much more than the Navajos did (Navajos usually stamped their hallmarks). But G. Brown??? Not sure about that.

The figure is called a Knifewing it is a Zuni work. I imagine the G. Brown to be the owner and the year the gift was received. Thanks for sharing.

I would like to know the maker and value of this large knife wing bolo. On the back, the clasp is marked “bennett C-31” Sterling. Someone has scratched CB and 1962 on it.
Please advise and thanks in advance!


I don’t know about CB, Booqua, Beyuka, Bowekaty are Zuni last names that come to mind that start with B. The bolo could definitely be that age. Are you wanting to sell this, and what is the price? Thanks for sharing.
