At first glance, you may think this charm is just a sweet vintage gold basket. But on closer inspection you'll find the cutest enamel red heart inside to symbolise ' I'm carrying your love with me'!
The charm has wonderful detailing throughout and is made of 9ct gold, marked '9ct' to the bottom of the basket. Without further marks, it's hard to date the charm exactly but we think given its style and the type of gold mark, it likely dates to around the 1950s.
The charm measures approx 19mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 11.2mm wide by approx by approx 11.1mm deep and weighs approx 2.15g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear, including some wear to woven part of the basket in places. The enamel heart also has some light surface wear. The jump ring is currently 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*
