Love photography? This could be the perfect charm for you! This sweet antique gold camera charm is modelled on what looks to be a Victorian style camera and has such lovely detailing throughout, right down to a tiny glass lens.
The charm is made of 9ct gold and is marked '9ct' to the back. There is also a registered mark that has worn away a little now and so cannot be read fully, from what we can make out it starts 'RD 329'. Without further hallmarks it is hard to date the charm exactly but we believe given the marks and the design of the charm that it's likely very early 20th Century in age.
The camera is wonderfully detailed throughout and the charm weighs approx 1.65g in total, it is hollow in the centre. The charm measures approx 10.8mm tall (not including the jump rings) by approx 9.8mm wide by 11.4mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good antique condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold and the glass lens. The end of the camera lens is a little misshapen. There is also a very small hole in the gold towards the top back right corner. There are two jump rings which are currently soldered closed, the larger of the two has an old dark solder mark to it. 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.*
