Hawaii was a big part of our charm market, here are but a few of the extensive collection (I’ll post individual shots as time allows).
We sold to the Cruise Liners and Dole (of pineapple fame). Again, with a couple exceptions, these are 30’s pieces, Hawaii was still a pretty exotic destination that took a minimum of 5 days to get to from a west coast port, lots of time to shop onboard…
On this bracelet we have a small Hula Girl,a Hibiscus, a Tiki, A T shirt, Guy surfer, Aloha in a Hibiscus lei ( each flower is cast individually & strung on chain !!), a hollow Pineapple, a Girl Surfer (Wahini), a Palm Tree with Hawaii sign, A Koa Nut (hollow), and 2 small pineapples on a common jump ring (notice they are 2 separate designs).
more to come,
