Markings: There are no markings evident. It has been x-ray tested for approx 10k gold.

Size: Measures approx 1.2 inches by 0.4 inches at the widest. Approx 0.3 inches tall at the tallest point. Total weight is 7.0g.
Condition: This charm/pendant has been previously loved and shows sign of significant wear in the bail (loop at the end to attach to bracelet or chain). This bail is almost completely worn through on the end that would bear the weight of the charm. This is likely due to being a heavier charm/pendant and all of the weight against a previous chain worn down the bail. Thankfully this should be a simple fix by a trusted jeweller. Originally this was scheduled for repair but due to current issues, we have been unable to have this repaired. Offering the charm for sale with this issue until this can be solved. It is not recommended to wear this in it's current state due to the fact that the bail is very thin and worn and may break through with additional wear.
In addition to the bail, the wheels do not fully spin. They may have at one point but it looks like there is wear to the underside of the car that has caused it to indent slightly so the wheels do not spin but move slightly. They are secure and the "axle" is visible to confirm this.
This pendant/charm has not been polished and shows some patina and discoloration that can be removed by the purchaser, if desired.
This piece is vintage/estate so it has been previously loved. As such, it will show the normal signs of wear in the form of scuffs to the band or surface of stones, lines from previous sizings or wearing of details. Any obvious issues will be expressly detailed but none of our jewelry will be in perfect showroom condition due to it being vintage of antique.
