This is a lovely example, in solid Sterling silver, of a large charm, or pendant, representing an outline of the map of Africa. It has a slightly convex shape (it is not quite flat) so it looks even more like it has jumped right off a globe of the world!

Having been lucky enough to travel all my life, I have long collected 'map' travel charms and I have had this charm since the 1980s. I would date it to the 1960s/1970s.

Marks: The rear of the charm is marked simply '925' in an old fashioned font.

Dimensions: The charm is on the larger size for a map charm. It has a total hanging length of 1 & 1/4 inches (3cm) including the bail and jump ring. It measures just under 1 inch at its widest. It weighs 2.5 grams.

Condition: This solid sterling silver charm is in excellent vintage condition. It has no dents or dings. The silver has lovely aged patina - with tiny scratches. It has a nice solid feel. I haven't cleaned it.

Overall, a very nice example of a larger sterling map charm. Who do you know who needs a vintage souvenir of their trip to Africa...?!
