When my mother was just a little girl, she couldn’t wait to start school! She would sneak along behind her big brother as he walked to the one room schoolhouse. This sterling silver schoolhouse charm is an old fashioned rural school created in lovely three dimensional detail.
You’ll find that one of these photos isn’t quite like the others… It’s the Glenwood School near Hoople, North Dakota, circa 1899. One teacher would manage the entire curriculum for first through eighth grades. Beyond that, youngsters were considered mature enough to begin working on the family farm.
This schoolhouse charm is beautifully detailed from the tip of the school bell to the columns that held the covered porch below. It measures approximately .75 inches long and weighs a substantial 2 grams. There is no makers mark on this piece, but it’s tested to confirm .925 sterling silver purity. It was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
Please take your time with the photos and consider them part of the description. Charms are properly installed when the jump ring is soldered closed.
