DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)

Gorgeous novelty 9ct yellow gold charm/pendant crafted in London in 1963 and hallmarked as such.

Modelled as a ‘cheque book’ with ‘London Bank Ltd’ inscribed to the front and when opened this charming charm reveals three original paper ‘cheques’ inside with all the details of a real cheque!

Measuring a good 2.5cm x 1.0cm without the jump ring this large charm or pendant would look fabulous on your charm bracelet and equally fantastic on a chain and worn as a pendant.
