Miniature Articulated Drop Leaf Table Charm
* * SOLD * *
A dainty, vintage, articulated charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold by the well-known New York jewelers Sloan & Co., as a dining table, with functioning drop-leaves. This little table is clean and minimal, with lathe-turned legs. Its top is polished smooth, and it has cute, clipped corners. This charm is beautifully made— the hinges that raise and lower the table's leaves are tight and very precise. This is the first drop-leaf table charm we have ever seen, and it is really winning! The perfect thing for a consummate hostess, or for holiday dinners with the tiniest of faeries. This charm is marked (on the bail) 14k for purity, and with the Sloan & Co lyre.
c. 1930 - 1940
Total drop (including jump ring) measures approx 16.6 mm; table top measures approx 10.3 x 9.1 mm with leaves down, and approx 10.3 x 14.9 mm, with leaves open.
