A traditional gift when a child becomes an adult at the age of 21 was the giving of the 'Key to the door', this is a fantastic 9ct yellow gold pendant or charm of a key with the age 21 to the end dating from the 1970's a time when charms were very popular. Again today these little works of art have become collectable being worn traditionally from a bracelet or with a modern twist as a pendant from a necklace.
The gold hallmark can be found to the end of the ky by the number 21, I can read the anchor mark for the Birmingham assay office but the date letter is unclear, please see the pictures.
Size including bale 2.5 x 1.0 cm or 1.0 x 0.4 inches.
Weight 0.3 grams or 0.18 penny weight.
