My Jewel Box: A Peg Doll Allure in the 1930s

This is likely to be my most loved thing I at any time acquired. The tale of how I acquired this kooky attraction is without a doubt value its individual website submit! In case you read my website, you will have found which i frequented Sarah’s Classic & Estate Jewelry in Buffalo, NY on my quick trip back home. I loved visiting the store, meeting the owner Sarah and everything about that day-it was magical. What happened afterwards when I got home to Nashville, you could say, was also magical and somewhat mysterious.

So here is what happened…

I was going through photos on my iPhone as I do every weekend, trying to delete things through the previous week and organize my life. When I visit stores, I take photos with a professional camera and barely use my iPhone. I did however take a couple pictures with my iPhone during my visit-I remember trying to see what the best angle would be to shoot images without getting a ton of reflection from your windows-so I was “test shooting” photos. A few of these test shots captured some platinum chain for menpieces of jewelry I overlooked on my visit, the main being the above14k yellow gold Peg Doll appeal. I was scrolling through the photos and there she was clear as day amongst all the other blurry shots. I was like, “What is this?! This is amazing!!”

I knew I had to reach out to Sarah and ask about the appeal, hoping it was still in her store. I envisioned her response being like, “A doll attraction? silver rings for womenI have no idea what you’re talking about, I’ve never had something like that before” …and it being a twilight zone situation. haha But sure enough, she still had it and the rest is history!

I posted a photo of the appeal earlier today and asked if anyone knew any information on this unique piece. Special thanks to Eden of The Eden Collective who had a similar allure at one point and did some digging on it. She called it a “Peg Doll” charm most likely within the nineteen thirties, originating in Germany. These peg doll charms were very popular back then. If anyone knows anything else, I’d be happy to hear! And also would love to see any interesting or unique charms in your collection too!
