Vintage Sterling Silver Travel Themed Charm Bracelet Bell Kinney
A unique gift for her - a one of a kind travel / holiday themed charm bracelet.
This is a delightful 1960s hallmarked infinity chain (also known as a figure of eight chain) charm bracelet with the traditional padlock heart clasp. The charms are high quality vintage sterling silver and much more detailed than modern charms. The aspect that makes this bracelet so collectible is that the charms originate from the countries they represent - all the British ones - St.Christopher, Blackpool Tower, Union Flag, Basildon & Callander shields were made in Great Britain. The gondolier & gondola are made from 800 silver which was made in Italy. Then we have an enamel Alpena, Michigan charm signed " KINNEY STERLING ", the Golden Gate Bridge, a Sterling Bell Jacob Lake squirrel and a covered wagon which were all made in America. There is also a Mexican dressed in a poncho made from Mexican sterling. Also a Spanish fighting bull.
The bracelet measures 18 cm / over 7 inches when closed.
This bracelet is such a gorgeous record of one lady's travels back in the day.

A St. Christopher charm - the patron saint of travelers.
