How sweet is this vintage silver and enamel opening mushroom/toadstool charm!? We can't help but think of children's fairytales whenever we see it. The mushroom even opens to reveal a tiny figure inside that we think could be a little pixie too.
The charm is made of sterling silver, unhallmarked but tested and has red and green enamel detailing to both the outisde and inside. There is even a tiny open work detail window to the top of the mushroom.
The charm measures approx 13.7mm tall by approx 11.7mm wide (not including the jump ring) by approx 12.6mm deep and weighs approx 3g.
Condition - The charm is in used vintage condition with significant signs of age and wear, including wear and loss to the enamel detailing and silver. The hinge mechanism still works but the clasp to keep the charm closed no longer works so the charm does open freely when worn. The jump ring is currently pushed closed and is attached to the bottom of the mushroom/toadstool so the charm hangs upside down when worn. 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.*
