This is quite possibly one of the most magical charms we've ever found! Featuring a tiny house, there is a cloaked miniature Little Red Riding Hood knocking on the front door and the charm opens to reveal the big, bad wolf hiding in the bed inside!
The charm is wonderfully detailed throughout and is a highly collectable and rare charm.
The charm is made of 9ct gold with British hallmarks for the maker 9ct gold, Birmingham and what looks to be the date letter 'C' for 1952.
The charm measures approx 13mm tall (not including the jump ring at the top) by approx 15mm wide by approx 10mm deep and weighs approx 4.5g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold. There does look to have been enamel work inside the charm but this has now almost completely worn away. There are some very small traces in places. The hinge mechanism works well and the charm closes with a click. 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*
