Just look at the detail that's gone into this beautiful vintage gold bull/ox charm! From its curling, pointy horns to its lovely fur and cute little ears and nose. We're not sure if its a bull or an ox, so we'll let you decide but either way it's a fantastic piece of craftsmanship.
The charm is made of 9ct gold (tested as it's unhallmarked). The charm measures approx 16.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 12.1mm wide by approx 13.8mm deep and weighs approx 2.35g in total. The charm has lovely detailing throughout, is hollow in the middle and the back is plain.
Without hallmarks, it's hard to date the charm exactly but we believe it's approx 1950s in age.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age and wear, including some light surface wear to the gold. There are some small marks to the gold, mainly to where the horns join the bull's head and where its neck joins the back plate which we believe are from when the charm was originally made. The gold is rosier in colour in some places and yellower in others. The bull's eyes have been made by drilling holes so you can see inside the bull ever so slightly. 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*
