Vintage Ice Cream Van Necklace

by Fine Format


    • made in britain

    A smashing ice cream van pendant, made from the photo of a handmade paper sculpture, on a silver or antique gold chain.

    Guarantied to liven up any frock. Why be happy with a puny ice-lolly if you could have a whole ice cream van?

    The design is an image of a small three-dimensional paper sculpture created by Jacqueline Wagner. It is printed onto thick sturdy cardboard and protected by a layer of clear varnish. The back of the pendant is pale blue paper with a ‘made of varnished cardboard’ sticker.

    This fun ice cream van is part of a splendid paper craft collection, designed in the smashing style of the 1950s. It is inspired by American ice cream parlours.

    Ice cream cones and jukeboxes are also available. Please take a look at our other listings.

    Available in two cheerful colours: light purple with a silver plated chain and bright blue with an antique gold chain. The antique gold chain looks very similar to a black chain, but has a yellow-ish shimmer.

    How your ice cream van is created:

    Remember those happy hours you spent as a child with scissors in hand and coloured paper glued to your fingers? That was Jacqueline's inspiration for creating the small three-dimensional ice cream van (shown in the last picture). Today she mainly works with a scalpel and often uses a pair of tweezers to ensure precision when creating her small-scale paper sculptures. Many hours go into working out the details and ensuring that all parts fit together neatly.

    Once she is happy with the result we photograph the object and get the image ready for print. All designs are professionally printed. The shapes are laser-cut and varnished by hand. In the last step we affix the chain and findings to your pendant.

    made from:

    Varnished cardboard.

    For long-term enjoyment, please handle with care and keep away from water. All plated chains are sensitive to moisture and chemicals. To enjoy your necklace longer, please keep away from perfume, water etc. The front of the pendant can be lightly wiped clean with a damp cloth, but please do not dip into water.

    The necklace is affixed onto a professionally printed card and packed in a clear (biodegradable) plastic bag.


    The chain is approx. 40cm long so that it sits a few centimetres below the collarbone.

    The pendant is approx. W3.5 x H3.5 cm.
