Antique WWI Silver & Wooden Fumsup Touch Wood Charm


An antique c1914 WWI silver Fumsup charm with a wooden head and articulated arms. Not only can he give the 'Fumsup' but he can also 'Touch Wood'. A very lucky charm.

It measures 30mm (1 inch 3/16ths) by 10mm (3/8ths of an inch) and weighs 2.1 grammes. The back is marked with the registration number 2029 which I haven’t seen before. It is also marked on one of the arms with "925 SIL". I wonder if this was produced for the Australian market? The wooden head has quite worn facial features but there is no sign that there was ever a four leaf clover on the forehead or 'Touch Wood' on the back. There is some chipping to the wood around the suspension bale and a small crack on one side but otherwise the charm is in lovely condition just slightly tarnished.

Don't forget, free shipping on all UK orders and free for worldwide orders over £100.
