These vintage sterling silver charms date from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, and are a mixture of travel charms, souvenir charms, hobby charms, and nature charms. A few of the charms are functional, meaning that they have moving parts, while the rest are static.
I've ordered the descriptions to match the pictures being used. While the charms are sold individually, if you'd like to buy them all, or more than one, please let me know and I can set up a listing for that. If you buy multiple charms, I will refund the difference in shipping charges (if applicable).
Silver Cow Bell
This estate silver charm is approximately 22mm tall, including bail, 12mm wide, and 7mm wide, and does have a silver clapper inside, which means that this little bell does ring. The bell is engraved with two rows of scallops, as well as 5 circles between the scalloped rows.
Statue of Liberty
This mini Statue of Liberty is approximately 30mm tall, including the bail, and has a nice amount of detail for such a tiny Lady Liberty.
This tiny toe shoe charm is approximately 25mm long, including the bail, and would be a beautiful estate charm for ballerinas, young and old.
Bear and Cub
This incredibly detailed vintage nature charm features a mother bear standing on her hind legs, with a little cub on all fours by her feet. This charm is approximately 24mm tall (with the bail and jump ring at the top), and 9mm wide.
This charm would be a perfect reminder of a trip to Paris, France or the Eiffel Tower itself. It measures approximately 24mm tall with the jump ring, and 9mm wide at the base.
This dragonfly charm could be worn as a pendant, or have a jump ring added to attach this to a charm bracelet. The body of the dragonfly is decorated with three rectangular baguette style stones, with a round stone on the head. Each wing has an additional three round stones for a total of 12. It measures 14mm across, and 12mm from top to bottom.
This shiny Italian Horn is a fertility, virility, and protection charm, and measures approximately 23mm from top to bottom and is 3 or 4mm at its widest point.
Oktoberfest Beer Stein -Functional or Moving Charm
This detailed Oktoberfest stein or German beer stein is a functional or moving charm, with its lid pivoting open and closed. The sides of the tankard have embossed decorations, and the top of the lids sports a finial which adds to the general fanciness of this little stein. Approximately 21mm from top to bottom, and 15mm at the widest point.
Condition: These sterling silver charms are in great vintage condition. They show slight wear and tarnish that you would expect in an item of their age, but no dents or other damage noted.

Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations, and can eliminate the ability to track or insurance the package.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
