Charms are for all ages. This Italian Vintage 800 Silver Metal Charm is exceptionally detailed showing a marcasite encrusted Gondola, driven by a gondolier, using an oar or pole. There is a 2-window enclosure to protect the tourists from the elements.
The gondola is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat, well suited to the conditions of the Venetian lagoon. For centuries gondolas were the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice.
Dates to the 1940’s.
Attachment: Original jump ring.
You can hang this Gondola on a bracelet or from a necklace chain. This charm is one of 35 that I will be listing. Please check back if you collect charms.
Measurements: 1 1/4” L x 3/8” Wide.
Signature/Marks: “800” is inscribed on the end of the oar.
Your Charm will arrive in a Custom Purple Twinkle in Time gift box & matching ribbon. Thank you for visiting A Twinkle in Time Vintage Jewelry, Accessories & Collectibles.
