Pigs have been seen as symbols of luck for many years. This vintage solid gold pig is such a sweet charm, from its litle face to its curly tail, we love that it's made of solid gold an can stand up on its own too. The sign of a well made, good quality charm!
The charm is made of 9ct gold with British hallmarks. To one side it is marked 'S&P' for the maker's mark and to the other it is hallmarked for 9ct gold, Birmingham and the date letter 'Y' for 1948. It has lovely detailing throughout and is solid.
This is a lovely early vintage charm, with most of the vintage charms we find dating to the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
The charm measures approx 15.2mm long nose to tail by approx 4.5mm wide by approx 8.7mm tall (not including the jump ring) and weighs approx 1.65g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear including some light surface wear to the gold. 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.*
