Rare and highly collectable, we completely fell head over heals in love as soon as we saw this antique gold bean charm! A symbol of luck, as well as rebirth and new beginnings, it even has a lovely pop of colour with a turquoise coloured glass stone set near the bottom.
The charm is made of 9ct gold, marked '9ct' to one side (this mark is now quite worn and hard to make out). Without further marks, it's hard to date exactly but we believe it's early 20th Century in age
The charm measures approx 18.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 9.3mm wide by approx 4.8mm deep and weighs approx 0.8g in total. The charm is hollow in the middle and has been made by joining two halves of the bean together so there is a faint seam line that runs around the sides.
Condition - The charm is in good antique condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold. Glue residue is visible around the glass stone. The charm also does have some dings to the front, back and sides. There are two airholes to the back from when the charm was made. The jump ring is currently pushed closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
