Here's what's inside box five of our 12 Days of Christmas (or Charm-mas if you will!) Advent Calendar... a vintage 1950s gold and enamel moving dancing charm - just look at how high they kick their legs when you move the lever at the back! The charm is available at the special festive discounted price until we open box six tomorrow at 6pm GMT (6th December 2022) too.
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has british hallmarks to the back for the maker 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'b' for 1957.
The charm is wonderfully detailed throughout, from the curtains to the tiny little dancers. We love that the charm has movement too, just wiggle the lever at the back up and down to make the dancers' legs high kick! The charm also has some wonderful enamel too although this is now quite worn.
The charm measures approx 15.9mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 13.1mm wide by approx 5.1mm deep (not including the lever) and weighs approx 3g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to the gold. Most of the enamel has now worn away although it can be seen still in places. The moving mechanism still works well. 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*
