Early Victorian Nelson's Column Magnifier Charm

Early Victorian Nelson's Column Magnifier Charm

$1,950.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1860

This marvellous little charm is one of the best I've ever seen....... at first glance it looks inconspicuous enough - albeit pretty - but it opens to reveal an exquisite hand-painted enamel miniature of Nelson's Column, complete with magnifying lens to zoom in on the detail! It can be dated as pre-1867 as there is no sign of Landseer's Lions at the base. Modelled in 15 karat gold, it's adorned with lovely hand chased foliate detailing.
