We love finding vintage opening charms, they are such fun pieces to wear and are sure to catch people's eyes when worn too. This vintage gold sphinx charm opens to reveal a tiny gold mummy inside, perfect for a history lover!
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks for 9ct gold, Birmingham and the date letter 'L' for 1960. There is also a maker's mark but this is now quite worn and hard to make out clearly.
The charm measures approx 15.6mm long (not including the jump ring) by approx 6.7mm by approx 10mm and weighs approx 2.9g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear, including some light surface wear to the gold. The hinge on the charm is a little loose so the charm opens easily and it doesn't always stay closed when worn. As the jump ring is attached to one end, the charm hangs vertically when worn on a chain. The jump ring is currently pushed closed.
*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*
