We've heard of reading tea leaves and playing cards. We think you can read charm bracelets too. They often give you some insight into who it came from and who wore it.
This 1940s sterling silver charm bracelet has a USN navy charm and a WWII bomber plane so it's likely this was sent to a soldier's sweetheart or wife. We're guessing it was his wife since there are baby shoes dangling from the bracelet. There's the London Bridge (maybe where he was stationed?), a cowboy boot (his favorite shoes?), two cute mice wearing sunglasses (representing him and his sweetheart?), and then a pitcher, lucky enameled horseshoe, tomahawk, and cup (the only charm that is not silver). Yes, it's a bit of an odd mix of charms but that's what makes 'charm reading' fun.
The link chain bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches long by up to 1 inch high on the charms. Bracelet weighs 19.3 grams. Secure spring ring clasp is marked STERLING. All the charms are either marked STERLING or have been acid-tested for sterling. The non-silver cup may be there because it has that war-worn look of a soldier's field cup.
The old sterling patina has been left unpolished. Bracelet is in excellent vintage condition.
