This delightful , jester mechanical charm tests to 800-900 quality silver. I believe that it was made in Germany during the Victorian period.
It measures 15/16” (2.4cms) long, including the top ring, by 11/16” (1.5cms) across. It weighs 1.5 grams.
This little fellow is delicately engraved on both sides and his limbs are fully articulated. You pull on the little ball at the base to lift his legs and arms. He has balls on both of his hands.
At the top is a ring with some undecipherable markings and a bail for hanging.
This intriguing and amusing charm is in fine antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
