9 CT Gold Welsh Love Spoon Charm And 9 CT Gold Chain London Vintage
A charming 9 ct gold chain and welsh love spoon charm. Both hallmarked, the charm is hallmarked for London and the chain has an import mark for London. Both pieces are in good vintage condition.
Welsh love spoons have been given as gifts to loved ones as far back as the 16th century, originally carved from wood; the prospective bride's father would determine whether the carver was adequately skilled in woodwork to be able to provide for his daughter and their potential family.
The measurements are as follows:
Chain: 51 cm or 21 inches in length.
Charm: 2.7 cm or 1.1 inches (inc. bail/link) by 0.7 cm or 0.3 inches
Together they weigh: 4.4 g or 2.8 penny weight
