SOLD Victorian 9ct Gold Bird Charm with Love Letter
A pretty and sentimental charm necklace from the late Victorian period. The pendant depicts a bird in flight that is made from 9ct gold and has a little red gem in his eye. He is carrying an enamel letter in his beak that has a little red dot at the centre, likely to represent a heart and thus, a love letter. Such a pretty and sentimental charm necklace. The bird has wonderful etching to the front to represent his feathers and there is lovely detail in the piece as a whole.
