How lovely is this vintage gold and enamel watering can charm!? It's perfect for someone who's green fingered, perhaps a gardener or veggie grower! We love the rose enamel detailing, like a miniature wearable piece of art. The watering can is a lovely large size and three dimensional too as if it could actually water some tiny flowers!
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold with British hallmarks on the handle for the maker 'ZLD', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'r' for 1972. The charm measures approx 22.6mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 27.9mm wide by approx 11mm deep and weighs approx 2.45g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to the gold and enamel. There is some green enamel to the bottom left leaf and also some marks to the gold, mainly what look to be from a clear protective layer added on top of the enamel at the edges of where this layer ends, and also a small dark mark to the gold on the top of the watering can. As the gold is very reflective and polished, it's hard to see these marks unless inspected up close. 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.*
