VERY GOOD. This antique 15ct Gold Lyre watch key charm pendant is in very good condition! The pendant has kept its shape well, with a wonderful rich Golden tone. The swivel bale is a wonderful characteristic of this pendant, and is fully functioning. The watch key does show some signs of wear, commensurate with age, but this is mostly in between the Lyre strings so not visible when worn! We think this is a lovely piece with a lot of character!
