How unusual is this vintage gold lobster trap charm. Wonderfully detailed, the bottom actually opens to reveal a little gold lobster inside too. We can't help but think of the famous phrase 'she's your lobster' whenever we see it, a slightly more alternative way to tell someone you love them perhaps!?
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks on the bottom for 9ct gold, Birmingham and the date letter 'X' for 1972.
The charm measures approx 17mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 14.3mm wide by approx 8.8mm deep and weighs approx 3.7g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold throughout. The hinge mechanism still works well and the bottom clicks closed firmly to stay closed when worn. 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.*
