Gold Ferris Wheel Pendant with Moveable Parts, 1950s
Reminiscent of Vienna’s Riesenrad in The Third Man (1949) this two color gold Ferris wheel miniature, from the 1950s, revolves by way of a crank, its chairs swinging as it turns around, on a flat base, it may be worn as a pendant or simply admired on a table.
Unmarked, probably Austrian, circa 1950.
1 in. (2.5 cm.) high including suspension ring, actual Ferris wheel is 1 1/8 in. high.
