Extremely Rare French Art Nouveau 18K Gold Miniature Pocket Knife Charm Pendant! The swirl themed side panels of the pocket knife are marked on the edge of both sides with an Eagles head (center region gold portion of the 8th image) which indicate that they are composed of 18K gold of French origin, and judging from the quality of work was most likely made by the Art Nouveau master metallurgist Charles Murat!
Weighs approximately 6.9 grams. The approximate length of the pocket knife closed 3.4 cm (1 & 5.5/16 inches) excluding the attachment loop and bale. The approximate length with the knife open is 5.72 cm (2 & 4/16 inches) excluding the attachment loop and bale. One small dent which could be seen in the top right portion of the 7th image, otherwise in almost perfect condition, not bad for a utility item that was well loved and a little over a century old!
Would make a great addition to any knife collection or a very cool gift for any occasion! This was one of the historical inspiration that brought about Swiss Army knifes!
