Vintage Silverplate Enamel Travel Shield Charm Busch Gardens Colorful Parrot
Dating to the 1960s or so, may I offer this silverplate and enamel travel shield charm advertising Busch Gardens. The front of the charm depicts a colorful parrot sitting on a branch. Condition is very nice with the reverse needing a light polish.
Metal Content is (to the best of my ability) silverplate. There are no hallmarks.
Size is 1/2" high (not including ring) x 7/16" wide. Weight is .9 grams.
Busch Gardens: The Busch Gardens amusement parks were initially developed as marketing vehicles for Anheuser-Busch and featured hospitality houses with samples of Anheuser-Busch products. They also included stables that housed many of the company's Clydesdale horses, which have been associated with Anheuser-Busch since 1933. Eventually, rides and attractions were added to the parks and over time were developed into full theme parks while still promoting Anheuser-Busch. Busch Entertainment Corporation, now called SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, was created as a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch Companies to run the various parks in 1959.
