    This is a 1970s Nuvo Sterling Silver Organ Grinder Monkey Movable Charm. Measuring 1.125" (28.5mm) high, the charm has a squatting monkey with a curled tail, holding a begging cup in his right hand.  He has a detailed face with large round eyes, rounded snout with nostrils, unsmiling line mouth, and round ears.  His oversized hands (the left curled back by his side) have individual fingers.  He is wearing shorts.  He sits atop an organ with 4 inlaid deep red rhinestones on front and double rope-like swirls on the other three sides and bottom.  There is a twisted bar (with a ring from which the charm hangs) on the bottom and a thin crank on the side.  When the crank is rotated, the monkey moves up and down and back to front.  The back has a flower-like piece engraved with "Nuvo" (underlined with a curved line) and "925."  This 1970s Nuvo Sterling Silver Organ Grinder Monkey Movable Charm is in very good condition with no damage or wear.
