We love a charm with symbolism and this vintage gold lantern charm has just that! We like to think of it as a wearable guiding light, to help point you in the right direction.
It's been very beautifully made, the gold crosses each of the four window panels, each made with a very fine pane of glass and there is a small red candle caged inside (we believe this is likely made of plastic).
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks to the bottom for the maker 'H.S', 9ct gold, the Birmingham import mark and the date letter 'O' for 1963.
The charm measures approx 18.1mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 9.5mm wide by approx 9.5mm deep and weighs approx 1.8g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold and window panes. There are some small, slight dings to the lantern's roof. The jump ring is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the antique box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
