Here's an unusual vintage game pendant for anyone who collects or admires Henry Dankner jewelry!

It's a large 14K gold game played on an 18-hole golf course. A metal ball is released at the top and runs through the clubhouse along the fairway, dotted with trees and bushes painted in green enamel. The aim is to get the ball in the green hole, located right next to a water trap!

Henry Danker & Sons closed its shop in Manhattan’s diamond district in 2014 after six decades of making jewelry. When it closed, the company donated its paperwork and molds to the jewelry design department at the Fashion Institute of Technology to preserve the history of its jewelry designs.

The Dankner name is most famous for its gold mechanical charms with moving parts: tiny, twirling dancers; beating hearts; spinning streetcars; and galloping horses. Watch mechanisms powered the moving charms. Robert Dankner learned his trade from his father, Henry, who moved the company from Budapest to New York in 1950, and was long in partnership with his brother George.

The golf game is a typical Dankner design. It's a fun piece that can be worn as a pendant or, you can remove the jump ring and give it to someone as their very own gold pocket game! Measures 1&5/8 from the top of the pretty gold bail by 1&3/8" across by about 1/4" deep. Weight: 18.2 grams.

Excellent condition, with no damage. Slight wear with age and use. Outer frame is stamped "DANKNER 14K, COPYRIGHT."
