Customer Question

Owner of 1940 Walter lambl sterling movable charm bracelet
Submitted: 7 months ago.

Expert:  rarewares replied 7 months ago.
Are you wanting to know the value of this piece?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Yes, noticed some individual charms were posted by themselves wonder if any of these fit in that category if I should sell the charms separate or the bracelet as all together
Expert:  rarewares replied 7 months ago.
I would suggest taking all of the charms off of the bracelet and selling the bracelet and all of the charms by the piece. This is what I do when I sell gold charm bracelets that I get from individuals and estate sales. There is more profit this way and charms are so niche specific that you would not likely find one person that would want the one bracelet with all of those same charms. Some of these charms are quite pricey on their own, too. https://www.etsy.com/search?q=walter%20lampl%20charmsWalter Lampl has a fascinating story and you can read more about it here. http://www.milkywayjewels.com/lampl_article.htmlIt is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
