This is an authentic, extremely rare, Bahia made Figa charm from Brazil. Set in 900 Silver, marked "Prata 900". The hand and wrist are hand-carved hardwood.
The puffy sleeve is adorned with twisted wire circular settings, each setting holds 1 of 5 genuine Rubies. The wrist wears a hammered twisted wire silver bangle. It is truly spectacular at almost 2 1/2" long. The puffed sleeve is 9/16" in diameter.
In excellent condition for its age, the thumb still has the silver nail. None of the other fingers do but that is not uncommon. Estimated to date from the 1920's, I personally purchased this figa at an antique market in Rio de Janeiro. What a fun day that was!
