Signed ART Asian motif Pagoda PENDANT with 15 charms including 4 Bakelite ~43 gms of collectible, mid-century costume jewelry


Shipping to United States: $1.99

*DESCRIPTION: In the 1960s, ART (Arthur Pepper) a costume jewelry manufacturer, created an Asian-inspired collection.
This pretty, signed charm pendant is from that particular collection.
There is so much detail.
The "cha-cha" pendant features 15 charms: 4 marbled genuine green Bakelite pieces, 3 Mother of Pearl discs, 5 “coins” with symbols, 2 green plastic balls, & 1 rectangle with symbols.

Three of the four Bakelite charms are pagodas with a round piece of Bakelite centered in each.
The fourth Bakelite charm is heart-shaped. (My favorite.)
The Bakelite pieces are set open backed.

The 15 charms hang from a gold-tone, Pagoda-designed pendant.
(See photos of hanging charms.)
The pendant bail is large and can also be worn on a lapel.

Fascinating piece. Fun to wear.


(All my Bakelite is authenticated using Simichome Polish.)
