We can't help but think that this vintage gold charm was based on a pirate's treasure chest! The lid actually opens but sadly there is no treasure inside but the chest does have wonderful detailing throughout.
The charm is made of 9ct yellow gold and has British hallmarks on the bottom for 9ct gold. The hallmarks are now quite rubbed and are hard to make out but we believe the charm dates to the 1960s. The charm measures approx 10.8mm tall by approx 17.5mm wide (not including the jump ring) by approx 13.1mm deep and weighs approx 2.8g.
Condition - The charm shows significant signs of age and wear. The trunk's lid has a dent to the top and is misshapen in places so it doesn't close flush. There is surface wear to the gold throughout too. The lid does open and close but it doesn't click closed so can open and close on its own so nothing could be kept inside. The jump ring is currently pushed closed.
*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*
