Vintage Retro Modern Mid Century Modernist Sterling Silver Honey Bee Bumble Bee Charm or Pendant
Dating to the 1970s/1980s or so, may I offer this silver charm in the shape of a flying honey bee or Bumble Bee. The charm/pendant looks to be the bee currently used in the Cheerios commercials - it is possible this was a piece that promoted the cereal and was offered either as a premium or a piece of jewelry to employees during the holidays. Manufactured by the firm of Israel Freeman & Sons, a noted maker of small silver pieces of jewelry.
Condition: Very nice with a mellow patina to the silver.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver
Hallmarks: (c) IFS Sterl
Size: 3/4" wide x 15/16" to top of curled bale.
Weight: 3.5 grams
Final Comments: Reminds me of the Romper Room bee from the television series of so long ago.
