Vintage 1950's 9ct Gold Sentry Box with Moving Enamel Life Guard Soldier Inside
A vintage 1950's English 9ct gold sentry box with an enamel Queen's Life Guard inside that can be moved in and out using the lever underneath.
It measures 17mm (11/16ths of an inch) by 9mm (3/8ths of an inch) and weighs 1.9 grammes. Marked on the roof “9CT”. The guard can be moved into the box and there is a fully working spring that ensures he pops out again quite quickly. There is a small hole on the side which I haven’t seen on this model before and I am unsure what it is for. There is surface wear and general wear to the box and lots of enamel missing from the guard. Still a nice novelty piece though.
