How lovely are these miniature vintage gold, gold mining tools!? There's a tiny axe and shovel, bucket with moving handle and a gold pan with two gold nuggets - it's hard to pick a favourite. All three tools are linked together by the same gold jump ring to make up the charm and all move freely too so the charm has great movement when worn. It would be perfect for someone who has a family connection to the history of gold mining!
The charm tests as at least 9ct gold (it is unhallmarked). The gold pan with two gold nuggets is a brighter yellow gold than the other two parts of the charm.
The pick axe and shovel measures approx 15.5mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 14.2mm wide, the bucket measures approx 10.6mm tall by approx 7.9mm wide and the gold pan measures approx 9.4mm in diameter. Together the charm weighs approx 1.6g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some light signs of age and wear, including some light surface wear to the gold. The jump ring is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.
*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.*
