This "Vintage Figa" is made of "French Bakelite". It is in a vibrant Tangerine Shade of Orange. Looks a bit like Italian Red/Orange Coral. Has a opalescent quality & life to it, the nails are painted gold & it wears a golden bracelet. The Bale & Cap are Brass. They are from Old Brazil & have a wonderful story if you are interested in knowing it. These are Rare & I am thrilled to have enough to sell to you! Only 3 left.
*Circa: Late 1940's to Early 1950's
*Sold as a single charm, the others are pictured for color choices. Tangerine, Lime & Lemon.
I have 3 only & don't know if I will ever come across VTG Brazilian Figas of this Quality ever again. They look stunning on a Charm Necklace with other Good Luck Charms. Finely Carved with Delicate Nuances. Many today are without the grace & elegance this Figa possesses.
*Figa is 1 Full Inch with Bale 1 1/4 inches. *Comes with all the good luck you can imagine!
*An ancient Roman Symbol, this gesture was called the "Mano Fico" in Italy where it was a fertility
& good luck charm designed to ward off evil or the Evil Eye. This symbol has survived in many Latin Countries; where it is most prevalent ~Brazil, carved images of hands in this gesture are used as good luck talismans. The Figa has been recognized as a good luck & prosperity charm for centuries. It was widely used as a talisman to attract good fortune & to push away bad, also known to bring good luck with prosperity. When the finger pokes though the fist it is considered Female, when just a fist Male. These are all Female Figas.
*I absolutely adore this sacred RARE & Ancient symbol of good luck. as well as protection from any sort of negativity.
