South American Bola with Leather Covered Balls
This bola is a very nice example of a real functional bola with braided leather cords and a leather pouch surrounding a stone or solid sand interior for each of the balls. One of the balls is smaller than the other two balls as expected. The leather is dry and stiff and is fine for display. There are leather softeners that can be used to soften the cords if you plan to throw this bola. The age of this bola is approximately 25 years. It is not an antique, but it is one of the nicest bolas you will find for sale. It is functional, rather than a decorative collectable. Cord length = 66 -> 72 cm ; Ball diameters = 5 -> 7 cm ; Weight = 585 gm
