To laugh in the face of fear is do what it takes to survive and thrive in the midst of uncertainty and bewilderment. And for those who lived in Italy during the 16th-18th centuries, the commedia dell’arte offered ample opportunities to find amusement in the otherwise alarming. Poking fun at all things taboo and terrifying, these performances turned—for a few moments—the hideous into the hysterical. Rooted in these productions all those centuries ago, the vintage Zanni Mask Charm reminds us to take the laughs wherever we can find them on this marvelously mystifying journey of life.
Fashioned from 14K gold, this vintage charm is crafted in the style of the commedia dell’arte character known for his impish irreverence. To us, it is a hint to take life a little less seriously, but to you it might mean something else. That’s the delight of charms—the meaning of each one is personalized to the story one wishes to tell by wearing them. An amusing adornment for any day, this vintage Zanni charm is an intriguing addition to any collection.
