Vintage 800 Silver Pisa Italy Travel Shield Charm Leaning Tower of Pisa


This vintage charm is marked 800 and measures approximately 5/8ths inches tall including the bail. I have had several Austria shields in my inventory- but none with such a beautiful design on the back. Also most Osterreich charms are the Austrian eagle or coat of arms- this has an Edelweiss, a Gentian Violet (the national flower),and what I believe is an alpenrose flower.



Vintage Sterling Bubble Heart Picture Locket Charm

This is a rare vintage charm in good condition- it is a marked sterling silver bubble heart picture locket. The picture is magnified once put in the locket as shown in picture #4. The clasp works well. You insert a picture on both sides- as this is a two sided locket. It will only hold small pictures- nothing three dimensional.

2 Vintage 1920s Valentines Day Greeting Cards

Posted by Michelle , Tuesday, January 29, 2013 11:55 AM


I've never dared to ask you
But maybe you can guess
That if you'd say you loved me,
T'would bring me happiness.

When you find this heart from me,
I hope you'll very happy be,
And if you are, t'will mean
that you
Will be my Valentine so true.
