Eclectic group of 16 charms from a world traveler. Trips to Europe and Africa are represented here (Dutch clogs, a zither, the African continent) but the majority of these seem to be representative of the traveler's personality and interests (a marching band tom, a bottle opener, a golf bag, a church, an antique automobile, a hand of cards, a gold nugget, a meat grinder grinding a heart, two luck of the Irish charms). XRF testing reveals two charms to be 9k, one charm to be 10k, one charm to be 11k, six charms to be 14k, three charms are 16k, two charms to be 18k and one charm to be 19k. Gross weight of bracelet and charms is 39 dwt (60.8 g). From the carefully curated collection of a Pan Am flight attendant, in service between the years of 1954 and 1984. Her many travels took her through Central America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the South Pacific. Keywords: African, European, American, vintage, fashion
