Here is another beautiful antique natural Mediterranean coral carved as a lucky il Gobbo.

Victorian orange/pink coral pendant with a solid 9k gold hook and 9k gold bail - no hallmark - acid tested positive as 9k gold.

The coral is beautifully carved as a lucky il Gobbo or Hunchback. It is in good antique/used condition with some signs of ageing and use which in my opinion only add to its timeless beauty. It’s sold as it was acquired from an antique dealer in France as part of a Georgian/Victorian coral bracelet/necklace with three other Gobbos among other charms. (Antique items are almost always pre-worn and will typically have some level of wear). Please refer to images for condition and further details.

It measures approximately 3.2 cm long (including bail) by 0.5 cm wide and it weighs approximately 1.47 grams.

The chain on image 9 is just used as a reference.

“Charms depicting Il gobbo, also known as the hunchback, were very fashionable in Italy in the 1800s. They were usually shown as a dapper little man wearing a dress suit and a top hat. In Victorian times a person with spinal curvature was also considered a good omen, and gamblers believed that touching their back would bring luck. “
