Vintage 9kt Gold Moveable Clothespin Charm
A delightful vintage clothespin charm from the 1950s! This charming piece is crafted in 9kt gold (indicating English origin), and carries the shape of a miniature clothespin (also known as a "peg" or "clothes peg"). The 3-dimensional charm has a moveable and fully functional design, which can be pinched at the back to open and release the pinchers at the front. At the top is a simple gold bail, which is marked "375" along the side. A fun and unusual vintage piece, it would make a unique addition to any charm collection!
Measurements: The charm hangs 1 1/4" long, including the bail at the top. The clothespin itself measures 7/8" tall, 1/4" wide, and 3/16" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the charm is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, or to the functional design. The bail has some signs of surface wear, but remains secure. There is a natural patina on the surface of the gold, which is a normal characteristic of vintage jewelry.
