Solid sterling silver fireman charm, standing in full gear with his axe at the ready. This talisman is a first responder, and he embodies the fire fighter’s motto of saving lives and protecting property.
Firefighting in the United States can be traced back to the 17th century when, after a great conflagration in Boston in 1631, the Massachusetts Bay Colony passed a law banning smoking in public places. New Amsterdam established the colonies’ first firefighting system in 1647.
This sterling silver fireman measures approximately .75 inches long and weighs 2.5 grams. This piece is marked to confirm .925 silver content and hallmarked by the silversmith who made it. It has been polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
