This vintage gold caravan/trailer charm is so wonderfully detailed throughout, and it opens too! The caravanhas three cut out windows that give you a little peek inside and it can be opened to fully reveal the two tiny people inside sat at a table. The inside has wonderful enamel detailing too and the wheels even turn!
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold, and has British hallmarks inside the caravan but they have been added to the floor of the caravan which has a strong texture to it, making the marks hard to read fully. The 9ct gold mark can just about be read and there is what looks to be a London assay mark and a date letter but this isn't readable. We believe the charm likely dates to the 1970s.
The charm measures approx 11mm tall by approx 23mm long (not including the jump ring) by approx 9.1mm wide and weighs just under 4g at approx 3.95g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some surface wear to the gold throughout and also to the enamel inside which has worn away in places. The hinge mechanism still works well and the charm clicks closed to stay closed when worn. The bar that joins the moving wheels together is a little bent towards one side. 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.*
