We can't help but fall for a vintage gold dog charm when we see one, regardless of the breed! And this vintage 1930s/1940s gold bulldog charm has the most lovable face and is even wearing a naval hat!


We think the charm was likely made in support of the Royal Navy, likely to show support during WW2. According to the Imperial War Museum, bulldogs were: 'popular mascots representing the British ‘bulldog spirit’, but also for their supposed resemblance to Prime Minister Winston Churchill.' They even have a photo of one particular bulldog mascot, 'Venus', on their website here.


The charm is made of 9ct gold and is marked '9c' to the back. It's hard to date the charm exactly but we think it's likely circa 1930s/40s in age. The charm is engraved to the front and plain to the back besides the gold mark. 


The charm measures approx 14mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 13.5mm wide by approx 0.55mm deep and weighs approx 0.75g in total.


Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with light signs of age and wear, including some light surface wear to the gold. The jump ring is currently pushed 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.*
