There's something so magical about grandfather clocks. Maybe in a world where everything is becoming digital, these traditional time keepers with such grandeur and beauty hold such a special place in our hearts.
This vintage gold miniature version is one of the most detailed charms we've ever found. There is an open section to the front so you can see the pendulum inside and the back of the clock opens to reveal the inside where a tiny mouse is hiding!
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks for what looks to be the maker AJLD (this mark is a little hard to make out), 9ct gold, London and the date letter B for 1976. The charm has a lovely weight to it of approx 4.25g and measures approx 27.3mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 8.5mm wide by approx 8.1mm deep.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold. The back panel of the clock does move left to right slightly when closed but stays closed despite this when shut. The jump ring is currently soldered closed.
*Please note the box pictured is not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
