This vintage gold opening egg charm is just so sweet. Not only is the egg beautifully decorated to the outisde, but it opens to reveal a little chick inside decorated with enamel too!
The charm is made of 9ct gold and has British hallmarks for the maker 'JL', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'n' for 1968.
The charm measures approx 14.9mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 9.5mm wide by approx 9.2mm deep and weighs approx 2.8g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear. There is some light surface wear to the gold and enamel. The hinge mechanism works well and the charm clicks closed to stay closed when worn but the two halves of the egg do come apart a little when closed. 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.*
