tbj05445

From a very collectable maker Georg Jensen this is a fantastic & rare Souvenir book of London in 9ct yellow gold & with English hallmarks. The book is of a great size meaning it could be worn as a charm from a bracelet or as a pendant from a necklace. Charms were very popular in the 1960's & 70's because due to their size they were very affordable & therefore collectable. Again today they have become very popular especially if they are marked with a maker such as Nuvo, CHIM, Toby or Georg Jensen.
The gold mark can be found to the rear, this is where you find the lion head mark for the London assay office along with the date letter for 1967. At the start of this mark are the letters 'GJLd', this is the makers mark for Georg Jensen Ltd, the Danish manufacturer & importer of New Bond Street, London.
There is very slight damage to the edges of the enamel, see pictures. Good hinge to open & the book shuts securely. Inside is a picture of Buckingham Palace, originally other London landmarks would have been included but these are now missing, again see pictures.
Size 1.8 x 1.6 x 0.5 cm or 0.7 x 0.6 x 0.2 inches.
Weight 2.6 grams or 1.625 penny weight.
