Originally made as a fob case to hold your stamps, this antique sterling silver opening envelope makes such a beautiful pendant. Store your keepsakes, like photos, a mini love letter or even a lock of hair inside!
The envelope is made of sterling silver and has British hallmarks on the inside for the maker 'C&N', sterling silver, Birmingham and the date letter 'r' for 1916. The flap opens to reveal the compartment inside and clicks closed to stay closed when worn.
The envelope measures approx 22.8mm tall (not including the fittings at the top) by approx 28.5mm wide by approx 4.3mm deep and weighs approx 5.2g in total. The envelope flap has lovely detailing too.
Condition - The pendant is in good, wearable antique condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the silver throughout and some indents, mainly to the envelope flap, the back of the envelope and there is a dint to the bottom of the envelope too. Please note that the envelope flap doesnt sit completely flush when closed. There are three jump rings currently connected to the top which are pushed closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
