We love finding charms that move, and this vintage gold and enamel can can dancers charm can't help but make you smile when you move the lever at the back to make their legs high kick!
The charm is made 9ct yellow gold with British hallmarks on the back for the maker 'GJLD' for Georg Jensen, a famous charm maker here in England, 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'C' for 1958. The dancers have some enamel detailing to them too, incuding red, black and white, although a lot of this has now been worn away with wear. There is also lovely detailing to the stage and curtains.
The charm measures approx 16.8mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 14.8mm wide by approx 6.2mm deep and weighs approx 3.15g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to both the gold and enamel. The gold colour is a little brighter yellow on the inside and a little softer on the outisde. The lever mechanism still works well. 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.*
