I was swinging the DeLeon in the back yard last evening just to unwind a bit, and found this little piece of silver jewelry. Not sure just what it is -- pendant? ring? -- but it looks to me like Minnie Mouse with her eyes kind of goofy and her tongue hanging out -- like maybe she is smitten by another mouse named Micky? Anyone else see one of these before? I can't see any touchmarks on the back.

I searched online for a similar example to your 'Minnie Mouse Ring' and found some that looked like it, but no exact matches. Since there are no makers marks on the piece, it may not be a Disney licensed item, so it may have been produced by a company simply trying to 'cash in' on Disney's popularity. :icon_scratch:

Looking at "Minnie Through the Years" would indicate that this is no older than about 1939, probably newer. Prior to 1939 Minnie either wore nothing on her head or she wore a hat with a flower. And she also didn't have pupils until 1939.

EDIT: As for the odd blob, I am either not processing the image correctly in my head, or it's maybe a defect?

EDIT EDIT: Maybe it's a tear, as in tears of joy? I don't know.
