Vintage 9K Gold, Silver & Black Glass Charm - Figa (Closed Fist)!

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1960 or so

ITEM: A charm to ward of evil spirits or the evil eye! It's a Figa charm, a closed fist, clenched fist, made of black glass (carved) with a band of rose gold around the wrist.

CONDITION: Very nice with a bit of roughness and one straw mark at the very top of the charm. The silver jump ring is open so if the piece is to be secure on a bracelet, it will need to be soldered shut.

METAL CONTENT: 9K Gold and Silver - more than likely 800 or 900 Silver

HALLMARKS: None that I can spot - metal was acid tested for content.

SIZE: From top of ring to bottom measures 1-1/2"; width is 3/8".

WEIGHT: 1.6 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: The figa, or closed fisted hand is used to ward off evil spirits and protect the person wearing it. It is said to have originated in Brazil, or even further back, during the Roman times in Italy. The luck from this charm is activated when it is bestowed upon a new recipient.
