Retro 14kt Enameled Musical Pin w/ Hanging Charms
A lovely and unusual gold and enameled pin from the Retro (ca1940) era! The piece, which is made of 14kt yellow gold depicts a musical staff with a treble clef and 3 notes. The notes have red enameled heart bases and a sign following the 3 notes has a black enameled surface. Swinging from the bottom of the musical staff are 6 wonderful gold charms, each depicting a unique design. The first charm is a dancing ballerina, the second, a realistic looking harmonica, and the third, a hula girl with a chain link grass skirt.

The charms all have wonderful and intricate detail and hang from thin gold chain. On the back of the pin is a long bar pin with a secure clasp. The clasp and two of the charms are stamped "14K". It's a very unusual piece and would be perfect for any lover of the arts!
