Vintage STERLING SILVER Charm Bracelet with 26 European Silver Charms
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: A single link charm bracelet holding 26 European charms of silver of varying content. On the bracelet, and to the best of my ability, you get.....
medieval building, lion rampant with shield, Roman bust (Rome), Wolf nursing Romulus and Remus (Rome), gate, wrapped jesus, fleur de lis on shield, fleur de lis of Venice, castle on shield, swan. Papal Crown/Keys (the Vatican), running legs, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Roman Banner SPQR (Rome), aqueduct, the Lion of Venice, griffin rampant, cupid, crowned shield, cathedral at Bologna, masted ship (Genoa), 2 towers, crown atop shield (same as other), building, gondola (Venice) and another Lion of Venice.
Judging by the make-up of the bracelet, I think the lady in question purchased the charm bracelet on the Pont de Vecchio then added Italian charms as she made her way from on city to the other.
CONDITION: Completely, utterly tarnished. This piece had been stored for close to 56 years. All that's needed is elbow grease and polish to bring everything back up to a high shine.
METAL CONTENT: The bracelet itself is Sterling Silver - the charms are either 800 or 900 silver.
HALLMARKS: STERLING on the clasp. I count only 3 charms that are actually hallmarked. In the old days, when buying a charm bracelet with charms, sometimes only a few charms were marked but the entire lot would be of the same content - I have the feeling the same applies here.
SIZE: Length of the bracelet is 7: - charms are in the 1/2" and up range.
WEIGHT: A hefty 59.5 grams.
FINAL COMMENTS: The bracelet looks full but it still can hold a lot more charms!
