Highly collectable, this vintage gold playing card has such lovely red enamel detailing to depict the three hearts on the front of the card. There is also traces of black enamel inlaid into the two engraved 'A's but this has mostly now worn away. The back also has a lovely engraved design too.Perhaps you love to play cards or you'd like to gift it to someone who holds your heart, it could symbolise a vartiey of different things!
The charm is made of 18ct yellow gold and the jump ring is marked '750' for 18ct gold and also the Italian maker 'UNO A.R', Unoaerre.
The charm measures approx 18.1mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 13.6mm wide by approx 0.7mm deep and weighs approx 2.15g.
Condition - The charm does show signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to both the gold and enamel. The centre heart does show signs of enamel wear due to the raised design of the enamel. There was once black enamel inlaid in the two letter 'A's as mentioned above but this has almost completely worn away. 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.*
