Dating from a time of the opening of the tombs in The Valley of the Kings in Egypt during the 1920's this is a charming enamel Moses baby basket charm or pendant which opens to reveal the baby Moses inside. Made from 800 grade silver marked to the inside of the lid, enamel detail to the top and sides. As expected from it's age there is a little wear to the enamel, please see the pictures, good hinge to open and shuts securely. It is of a great size meaning it could be hung traditionally as a charm from a bracelet, as well as a pendant from a necklace. Fabulous.
Size including bale 2.4 x 1.5 x 0.6 cm or 0.9 x 0.6 x 0.2 inches.
Weight 4.3 grams or 2.7 penny weight.
