Vintage 14kt Gold Show Boat Charm
A delightful vintage river boat charm from the 1950s! This whimsical piece is made of 14kt yellow gold and has a miniature steam boat design crafted in 3-dimensional detail. The double decker boat has two rows of tiny windows, and a delicate paddle wheel that extends out in the back. The words “SHOW BOAT” appear on both sides of the structure in large block letters. Two smokestacks protrude from the top, in front of a small captain’s box at the helm. Completing the design is a tapered hull, which is stamped “14K” at the base, beside a small hallmarked symbol. A gold ring is attached to the top of the boat, perfect for hanging the piece from a fine chain or charm bracelet. Perfect for the vintage charm collector, this wonderful piece evokes nostalgia and would make a unique addition to any collection!
Measurements: The charm hangs 1/2” long, including the gold ring at the top. The boat itself measures 3/8” tall, 3/4” long, and 1/4” wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the charm is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or ring for hanging, which is secure.
