Fun and games ....... card games to be exact. This darling little charm is so much fun, it's a spinner with a humorous engraving ..... "Gamblers Nightmare" ... aaaach what can we say ? :)
This little wonder is crafted in 9 carat rich, yellow gold as a circular disk with a spinning cube in the centre. The cube is pierced through its four sides, which feature enamelled four symbols of the suits; hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades. The remaining solid sides are decorated with images of two playing cards.
The charm is fully hallmarked with 9.375 for English 9 carat gold and a city mark for London with a date letter "c", dating it to 1958. There is a stamp of its maker's GJLt, for Georg Jensen Limited, a Danish manufacturer and importer who retailed from New Bond Street, London. Georg Jensen is normally known for an altogether different style of jewellery but they did retail various other styles as well.
The disk measures 17.8 mm north to south by 16.9 mm side to side. Its length, including the bale is 23.9 mm. It weighs 2.8 grams and is in very good vintage condition. The enamel shows a tiny bit of wear and it looks like a couple of the suit characters may have been re-enamelled, but this is expected for the age of the charm and does not detract from the look at all.
We love ........ this humorous gambling charm, the fun detail and the lovely quality. We don't think it's a nightmare at all :)
