Cartoon Charm Set

The Cartoon Charm Sets were produced by Prevue Products N.Y.C. in USA in 1954. The box sets contain charms (miniatures of comic book characters) designed to be worn as costume Jewellery (necklace, bracelet, etc.) or to accessorize wearable items such as hats or clothing. The box sets are fully licensed by King Features Syndicate.

A variety of comic book character charms are found within the sets, including Barney Google, Jiggs and Maggie, Wimpy, Swee’Pea, Henry, Olive Oyl, Jiggs, Der Captain, Katzenjammer Kids, Popeye, Snuffy and Loweezy, Felix the Cat and Henry. Brass Chain, Brass Ringlets and Brass Pins are also found within the box set, designed to create your own Jewellery designs (necklaces, brooches, bracelets, keychains) with the available charms before wearing.

The Phantom makes an appearance on the packaging of the Cartoon Charm Sets, however a Phantom charm isn’t found amongst the comic book characters produced.
