This is a very nice and well kept Walter Lampl NY 3D church charm with steeple that was made about 1940. This version of Lampl's church chapel was patented in 1937 and was a popular seller for him from that time through the 1940's. The charm is marked "STERLING" on the bottom and is also hallmarked with the patent number "D-107523. The Lampl patent associated with this charm is also pictured for reference. This Lampl charm can be discovered with a number of different images in the stanhope and this one is home to the most commonly found "Lord's Prayer". The Lord's Prayer stanhope also has an image of a kneeling woman above the title "THE LORD'S PRAYER" and it is marked "-MADE IN FRANCE-" along the right side. The charm is smaller than most stanhope church charms measuring about 9/16" X 3/8". It shines a little more than the pictures show but it has a nice undisturbed natural patina indicative of it's age. This would be a suitable piece for collecting or to attach to your favorite charm bracelet.
As a matter of information, We've added a photo of the original Walter Lampl patent as it was registered with the US Patent Office. The patent is only provided to enhance this listing and not meant as part of the sale.
