Meet Tobermory, one of the beloved Wombles introduced to us by author Elisabeth Beresford. From Wikipedia: "The Wombles are fictional pointy-nosed, furry creatures created by Elisabeth Beresford and originally appearing in a series of children's novels from 1968. They live in burrows, where they aim to help the environment by collecting and recycling rubbish in creative ways. Although Wombles supposedly live in every country in the world, Beresford's stories are concerned with the lives of the inhabitants of the burrow on Wimbledon Common in London, England. The characters gained a higher national profile in the UK in the mid-1970s as a result of a BBC-commissioned children's television show. The Womble motto is 'Make Good Use of Bad Rubbish'. " and "Tobermory – an engineer, based on Beresford's brother, a skilled inventor, and named after the capital of the Isle of Mull, in the Scottish Inner Hebrides. He has a gruff and surly manner but like Bulgaria (with whom he has been friends for many years) he has a very kindly heart." This is your chance to make Tobermory your own so he can hang out with you on your favorite charm bracelet!
The patina is soft, and as with many English charms, is a lighter colored silver. The detail is very nice, and the charm is in very good condition.
Hallmarked on the bottom of the charm with the maker mark 'L&N', and with an anchor, lion passant, and date letter Z which signify the assay office of Birmingham, metal content of sterling silver, and the year of 1974 respectively.
