Miniature Enameled Spinning Globe Charm
* * SOLD * *
A rare and wonderful vintage charm, modeled in 14k gold, as a spinning globe, on a footed stand. This little globe is beautiful and highly detailed! Here, the earth's land masses are rendered in polished gold, while the seas are a field of bright blue enamel. A gold banner, bearing the sentiment "you mean the world to me" encircles the globe, like a horizon band. The globe is pinned through the center and it spins freely on its stand. A bail and jump ring are mounted on the tiny stand arm. This miniature charm is sweet, it's brimming with old-fashioned sentiment, and it's very very cool!
c. 1940 - 1950
Total drop (including jump ring and bail) measures approx 21 mm (about 4/5"); globe and stand measure approx 16 mm x 10.8 mm (at the widest point).
