We love charms that are practical as well as pretty! This vintage gold key charm looks like it was originally made to wind a pocket watch. These keys were then often hung on an watch chain so they were always closed to hand for when your timepiece needed winding.
The key is made of gold (tests as 9ct, it is unhallmarked) and has lovely detailing too.
The charm weighs approx 1g and measures approx 28.7mm long by approx 11.1mm tall (not including the jump ring). When hung via the jump ring, the key hangs at an angle. It could also be added to a chain using the top ring of the key too so it would hang vertically.
Condition - The charm is in good antique condition with some light surface wear to the gold. The cross section at the end of the key is a little misshapen. The jump ring is currently pushed closed.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale*
