Vintage English Silver Zodiac Charm CANCER

Description: A vintage English sterling silver zodiac disk charm for Cancer. This a lovely disk with a finely detailed crab (ok, I know that it's a crab, but it looks to me like a lobster... and if anyone knows why European crab charms often do look like lobsters, I wish you'd let me know, because I can't seem to find out!). It says Cancer, and the background is a fine textured detail that both looks wonderful with the soft patina of the charm and makes the crab really stand out. Cancer birthdays are approximately June 21-July 21, and if you're a Cancer baby or know one, this would be a lovely birthday charm..
Markings: Marked sterling silver / no engraving on rear.
Weight: Approximately 2.3 grams
Dimensions: . 5/8" (18mm) disc
Condition: Perfect given age. v229
We do combine shipping! Any number of items ship for the same flat-fee around the world (if you buy more than one charm, please send us a 'Request Invoice' request. ebay seems incapable of calculating combined shipping costs on more than one item at a time).

Looking for a certain zodiac charm, please check out our store for more!

Check out our eBay Store, too... t are lots

We list auctions on Thursdays (when we can), and we update the store frequently!

Please note that we never ever ever ever ever ever (really, never ever, not ever) change current auctions to Buy It Now.

It's not fair to those who may be watching the auction. We do, however, ship very fast, so if you need something quickly, we'll do everything we can to help!

Age and Cleaning of Jewelry and Charms Unless requested, silver jewelry is always uncleaned (by me, anyway) to keep original patina, but if you like it cleaned, I'm happy to do that.

Silver charms come with original jump ring if the ring is good condition, or a new ring otherwise.

Please see my ABOUT ME page for some general information about dating of jewelry and about cleaning jewelry.

Shipping within the USA

$3.50 shipping fee for items in the United States securely mails any number of charms, lovingly and carefully packed in a small box and heavy mailer so your order will arrive safely. We're happy to combine shipping on auctions won within a few days; just let us know! (And if you're in a hurry, we ship Priority Mail for $5.50.) Shipping includes delivery confirmation.

Our shipping costs represent the cost of mailing and materials used; recent post office price increases have really upped the cost of shipping small packages.

New York residents must pay 8% sales tax, unfortunately!

Shipping Internationally Shipping outside the U.S. (for charms and other small items, uninsured) is $3.50 via international airmail or $11.00/$13.00 via Global Priority Mail (depending on country). (Sorry about the ridiculous rates for Global Priority Mail; they just keep raising them.) Invoices

We usually send invoices within 24 hours of end of Thursday auctions (we usually wait after Tuesday auctions, because often people are bidding on Thursday lots as well!). If you haven't heard from us and you'd like an invoice sooner, just let us know!

About Paypal PayPal has been just awful about sending payment receipts lately. I usually confirm shipping when I get your receipt, but since sometimes they don't send me anything... if you don't hear from me, please feel free to mail me to check, because sometimes I don't realize you've paid until they let me know, days later! Questions? Please email me before bidding. Items can be returned (less shipping costs) only if I described them incorrectly. See my other auctions for more vintage charms and antique jewelry. Looking for a particular charm? Let me know.
