This vintage 9ct gold and enamel Sleepy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs charm makes us reminisce about our childhoods and the many hours spent watching Disney films.
The charm was likely once part of a set of the full seven dwarfs but somehow Sleepy has found his way alone to us. The charm is made of 9ct gold and has wonderful enamel detailing to the front. The charm is plain to the back and is marked '9ct' and 'W.D' which we believe is likely the mark for Walt Disney.
The charm measures approx 15.6mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 6.9mm wide by approx 1mm deep and weighs approx 0.85g.
Without full hallmarks, it's hard to date the charm exactly but we believe it's mid-late 20th Century in age.
Condition - The charm does show significant signs of age and wear to the enamel. A section of his left arm, leg and foot has been lost. There is also some damage to the top coating of the enamel to his beard too. This enamel damagae could possibly be repaired by a jeweller but we are selling as is. Care will need to be taken when worn as to not damage the enamel further. The gold also has some surface wear. The jump ring is currently pushed closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
