Dainty Realistic Mid 20th Century Binoculars Charm in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A darling, mid 20th century charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold as a highly realistic pair of binoculars. These miniature field glasses are made with many individually fabricated parts, which makes them appear mechanical— the central post is actually threaded, the ratcheting disc is complete with tiny, hand-sawed notches, and the screw head looks like you could really turn it with a screw driver! We love these finely-made old charms, and like our favorite examples, this one has lots of symbolic potential. These binoculars are well-suited to birdwatchers, peeping toms (jk jk), or anyone who likes to keep an eye on things from a safe distance (you can't be too cautious!). They are really cute and really cool, any way you look at them. This charm is very pretty worn alone on a slender chain. Marked 14k for purity.
