Antique Enamel "Ich Liebe Dich" Spinner Charm
* * SOLD * *
A wonderful, early-20th-century enameled spinner charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose central disc spins freely inside a stirrup-shaped frame. This disc is decorated with bright red guilloche enamel. Gold letters from the phrase "ich liebe dich" appear on either side of the disc, and when it spins, an optical illusion makes the phrase visible. This tiny charm is a rarity! Condition is excellent with no losses. Ich liebe dich translates from the German to mean "I love you."
