An antique, Portuguese, Christening charm. These sweet tokens were often given by members of the family to babies at their christening. This charm has reads “remember Grandparents”, which has been had enamelled on the delicate plaque. Surrounding the precious sentiment is a hand engraved vine of flowers, perfectly feminine. There is evidence that the flowers would have been enamelled at some point, however this is faded. The charm is offered in good overall condition, however there is some thinning to the bale, although this doesn’t compromise this special piece, and some light scratches to the reverse.
