Antique English Tassel with an acorn cap, 6 tassels -3 with end balls, 3 without. This is a rarely seen tassel from a gentleman's Albertina chain. Sterling tested, ca. 1900
Vintage English Squirrel holding a nut, this is solid with beautiful and tactile detailing including red paste eyes. Sterling tested, ca 1960
Vintage English acorn with a great cinched cap and curved bottom - this is my favorite acorn! Sterling tested, ca 1960-80
Antique French Art Nouveau Jugendstil signed open work acorns and leaves slide charm, probably silver plate although there isn't any brass or base metal showing through the silver. In beautiful condition so I did not want to test this and risk marring the silver. Slides open to an antique photo of a woman with glasses. Ca 1900
Vintage American squirrel charm, solid. Sterling tested, ca 1950
Vintage English opening acorn with squirrel inside. This is the acorn where the top opens up, not the whole body! Really nice quality, cap has no gap and opens and closes tightly. Ca 1960
Antique Art Nouveau squirrel pendant/charm flat and plain on the back, the front is three dimensional and beautifully rendered - very nice rare find. Marked Sterling on the back, ca 1900
Antique English slender acorn, marked Sterling, ca 1900
Vintage English squirrel, solid Sterling, weighty piece with a beautifully rendered finish. Sterling tested, ca 1960-1970
Vintage English puffy acorn, not flimsy - quite substantial for a hollow piece. Sterling tested, ca 1960-1980
Solid Sterling Silver Vintage American curb link chain is 7 1/4 inches long.
Vintage English Ajoure lantern style clasp features beautiful cut out work in wee hearts adds another 3/8 inches to the length. Ajoure is a technique where cut outs are made in the mold resembling panes - it translates to "open work".
Together this assembly will fit up to a 6 3/4 inch wrist.
Largest charm overall is the antique squirrel at 1 1/4 inches, however the tassel drapes 1 1/4 inches also.
Total bracelet weight is 49.3 grams
I have been designing these types of charm bracelets since very early in my career. Most are commissioned pieces where I actually shop for the charms at the time of the order. Of course I pick up things as I go and have some pieces shipped directly to me from the UK and France so I have a large stash of charms and baubles available most of the time.
If you would like to see more photos of individual charms please don't hesitate to email me - there isn't enough space to show them all up close so I will be happy to send them to you separately.
Please note that my photos are highly enlarged and therefore magnify every nuance many of which are not visible to the naked eye.
This will be shipped with Signature Confirmation, Delivery Confirmation and Fully Insured through a 3rd party. Any overages in shipping will be refunded to the buyer.
