This belonged to Nick DiRienzo's estate. It was purchased by Lori Lewis Zaumseil at auction. He was a HUGE and very serious Griswold collector. He bought the piece from Joanie Baldini --she is one of the original founding members of GCICA. She said that this is actually a watch fob (as Nick had written on the envelop it was in). These were made for the salesmen, back in the days when every salesman wore a nice suit and carried a watch on a chain!
