Rare and highly collectable, we love this sweet little vintage gold bean charm! A symbol of luck, as well as rebirth and new beginnings, it is such an adorable petite size.
The charm is made of 9ct gold with a lovely soft rose tone to it. The charm has British hallmarks to one side for the maker 'WJP', 9ct gold, Birmingham and the date letter 'K' for 1959.
The charm measures approx 16.2mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 6.7mm wide by approx 3.8mm deep and weighs approx 0.45g in total. The charm is hollow in the middle and has been made by joining two halves of the bean together so there is a faint seam line that runs around the sides.
Condition - The charm shows significant signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold throughout. The are some dings to the front and back. The ring at the top that conncets to the jump ring has come away at one side. It is currently holding but we recommend having this repaired when having the charm soldered onto your charm bracelet or necklace so that it is resecured. 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.*
