1974 hobbies / pastime themed vintage charm bracelet
This is a unique and highly collectible vintage charm bracelet. This bracelet is hobbies / pastime themed. It is a fully hallmarked sterling silver charm bracelet. A traditional 1970s good quality twisted curb bracelet with the padlock heart clasp. The charms are vintage sterling silver (except for the castanets which are 800 silver) and much more detailed than modern charms. The bracelet is larger than the standard size - measuring 20 cm / over 7.8 inches when closed. The curb height is 7 mm. The heart padlock is hallmarked "R P" (maker's mark), anchor (assayed in Birmingham), lion passant (sterling silver), Z (1974)" on the back. The curb links are further hallmarked lion passant at regular intervals - image four shows multiple curbs with the lion passant hallmark. The curb next to the skater boots has the maker's mark, assay office and date year too. As you can see the clasp is the traditional heart shaped in the style of a padlock with safety chain.
