Lincoln Zunie was the eldest brother of an incredibly talented family of inlay artists. Joe Zunie and William Zunie are known for their instantly recognizable jewelry and excelled in their art with their equally talented wives. Lincoln and Helen Zunie created beautiful inlay work incorporating animals and mostly horses and cattle. Their work is also easily recognizable for most artists. They also created beautiful inlay work on their covered wagons and most had moving wheels. Today we concentrate on their covered wagon design. Here is an incredible example of their work. This beautiful heavy covered wagon belt buckle is created with white shell, black shell, red coral, spiny oyster shell, turquoise and sterling silver. The incredible moving wheels and brake are in working condition. This stunning belt buckle measures 3.5 inches wide. Signed H-L Zunie by the husband and wife silversmith team.
