Sloan & Co. 1930s Miniature Eight Ball Enamel Charm in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A dainty, vintage "eight ball" charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose number eight is hand painted in black enamel, atop a circular, white enamel field. This miniature eight ball is beautifully made, and it's full of symbolic potential— maybe you do your best work when you're behind the eight ball?! Maybe you play pool? Maybe you really miss cocaine? Whatever the reading, we love this little talisman. We think it looks best worn alone, on a slender chain, but it would also make a wonderful addition to a charm bracelet. This is a rare old charm, and its smooth, perfectly-round form makes it a pleasure to wear. Marked 14k for purity and with the Sloan & Co. lyre.
Ball measures approx 9.6 m; total drop is approx 15.3 mm (3/5"), including jump ring and bail; weight is approx 1.3 grams.
