We can't decide if this vintage gold charm looks more like a rat or a mouse, so we'll leave it up to you to decide! Either way it is fabulously detailed throughout and is such a weighty piece, weighing almost 5g! We love the two ruby eyes too.
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks for 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'h' for 1963. There is also a maker's mark but this is a little rubbed and hard to read fully.
The charm weighs approx 4.9g and measures approx 20mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 19.6mm nose to tail, by approx 7.5mm wide. The charm has lovely detailing throughout and has two pink ruby eyes.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age including some light surface wear to the gold and rubies. 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*
