This is a lovely example, in beautifully crafted yellow gold, of a 'Cornucopia' - a lucky charm worn to attract abundance.
In classical antiquity, the cornucopia was also called the 'horn of plenty', and was a symbol of abundance and nourishment. It was represented by a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers or nuts.
In the USA, the cornucopia is associated with Thanksgiving.
I have had this charm since the 1980s.

Marks: The the bail is hallmarked '375' for 9 Carat Gold. There is a Maker's Mark but it is very small and hard to read. It is quite likely Italian.

Dimensions: The charm is on the larger size for a Cornucopia Lucky Horn. It has a total hanging length of 1 & 3/8ths inches (3.5cm) including the bail and jump ring. It weighs 0.8 grams.

Condition: This yellow gold charm is in excellent condition. The yellow gold has lovely aged patina - I haven't cleaned it. It appears more 'yellow' under the photography lights than it does in natural light. It has a nice solid feel.

Overall, a nice example of a larger 9k gold lucky charm.
