How unusual is this vintage gold lobster trap charm!? wonderfully detailed, the bottom actually opens to reveal a little lobster inside. 


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 15.7mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 15.8mm wide by approx 17.8mm deep and weighs approx 5g. 


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 bottoms clicks closed to stay closed when worn. The bottom of the charm doesn't sit perfectly central to the top cage but this isn't really noticeable 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.*
