Unmarked Sterling .925 silver stanhope charm is a small figural key designed by Walter Lampl of New York for the 1939 World's Fair. After that time, such keys were made with stanhope views of various other cities. This one shows a view of Temple Square in Salt Lake City Utah. The grip is a globe or sphere and home to the stanhope lens. The condition of the pendant is good and shows little signs of wear. The image is very clear and easy to see. This is a very nice piece to wear as a pendant or charm, or to collect. The image shows The Temple Square in Salt Lake City, UT. Early Mormon pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. Shortly after arriving the church president, Brigham Young, selected a 10-acre plot of the desert ground. He proclaimed that this land would be where we will build a temple to our God. When the city was surveyed, the block enclosing this location was designated for the temple. It became known as Temple Square. A high wall surrounding Temple Square was built shortly after this designation. The photo is titled:
