As true Brits, we're great believers in the power of a cup of tea! We're well known as a nation to turn to popping the kettle on, whether it's in a time of comfort, needing help solving a problem, catching up with friends or family, so it's no suprise that we're a little bit in love with this vintage gold teapot charm! We love that it opens too and can be used like a miniature locket.
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks to the bottom for the maker 'G&H', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'e' for 1960.
The charm is detailed throughout and the lid is hinged to open and close.
The charm measures approx 12.2mm tall by approx 18.7mm handle to spout (not including the jump ring) by approx 7.6mm deep and weighs approx 3g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold. The hinge still works well and the lid closes firmly. 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.*
