We love a moving charm and this vintage large gold moving pair of scissors charm would make a great piece for a seamstress, hair dresser or animal groomer! They are hinged so the blades actually open and close and the handles have a lovely stippled effect too.
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks to one side for the maker 'JP', 9ct gold, London and the date letter 'C' for 1977.
The charm weighs approx 2.85g and measures approx 38mm tall by approx 16mm wide (when closed) by approx 2mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold. The hinge mechanism is a little loose so the scissors can open by themselves when worn. There isn't currently a jump ring attached to the charm, the scissor handles are a nice large size so a chain could be passed direct through (the opening is approx 4.8mm in diameter). We can add a new 9ct gold jump ring if required, please just let us know at checkout.
*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. *
