#BEADSC0220 - Brass Plated Dipper Charm
Vintage 3/8" tall brass plated dipper charm. These are unusual and uncommon. Circa 1950s and unused. They show some very slight aging as do most metal charms. Metal charms are very scarce and desirable. These charms are one of those items we find a quantity of and think they will be around awhile. But, they will sell out before we know it. Metal charms just don't turn up often. Take advantage of this find.

This item is from our recent trip. We just returned with these and over 100 other items! We found two separate warehouses with beads, cameos, cabochons, charms, and other stuff that went as far back as the early 1900s. It was pretty amazing to find these old places, and very exciting!
