Vintage STERLING SILVER Charm - Charlie McCarthy, Edgar Bergen Puppet, Mechanical

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1940 or so

ITEM: A hard charm to find in perfect condition! Here's Charlie McCarthy, the puppet used by Edgar Bergen (yes, Candace Bergen's father) in his radio/movie act in the early days. Charlie wears his traditional monocle (with string), a red rose in his lapel and his head bobs up and down. He sits on a stool and is quite composed. Bale is located on Charlie's back.

CONDITION: Excellent with a vintage patina to the silver. NOTE: This charm was produced twice - the first strike had great detail with the enamel touches. The second time it was produced, the definition was a bit more diffuse and there was no enamel used. The string did remain both times. What I offer now is FIRST STRIKE.

METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver

HALLMARKS: (c) E.B. STERLING Now there are two theories to the hallmark - first, the copyright symbol is for Edgar Bergen. Second, the maker is the jewelry firm "The Engel Brothers" located in New York, NY. The brothers opened their business in the early 1930s and closed shop around 1965.

SIZE: 1” x 3/8” approx

WEIGHT: 3.2 grams - a solid charm.

FINAL COMMENTS: Terribly cute and wonderfully collectible!
