Vintage Sterling "Knight in Shining Armor" Moveable Charm
A unique and fun Vintage "Knight in Shining Armor" charm pendant! This sterling silver piece depicts a miniature medieval knight, with a lovely moveable design created in 3-dimensional detail. The arms, legs, and helmet of the armored clad knight are hinged, allowing them to move up and down or side to side, creating a whimsically playful design that trembles with every movement. The armor around the shoulders and waist are decorated with ribbed layers, while the face plate displays a mesh-like motif. When the face plate is moved upward, a delicate image of a man's face can be found, a wonderful hidden feature! Resting at the top of the helmet is a fluted bail, stamped "925" on the inside, and stamped on the bottom of each boot is "STERLING" beside a maker's mark. A unique and fantastic piece that would look wonderful hanging from a favorite chain or charm bracelet!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 1 1/8" long (including the bail at the top), measures about 1/2" wide and is 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the charm pendant is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting and all of the moveable features are intact and in good working condition. The bail is secure and in good working order. There is a natural darkened patina on the surface, which is common given its age and highlights the various 3-dimensional details.
