This is an adorable antique German charm depicting children stealing apples from across a fence. The one in the middle is going over the fence with the help of a push by the one on the left.
This charm is one of a wonderful series of stylized enameled charms with many different themes. I love the simplicity of the shapes. The colors are always lively and interesting. The charm is in great condition and bears its original aged patina. It dates to around 1910.
The measurement is 5/8" by 1" and the weight is 3.8 grams. The bale is stamped 800 and VM for the maker. Such an endearing charm, and quite rare.
