Sloan & Co. Miniature Grand Piano Charm
* * SOLD * *
A dainty vintage charm, modeled as a grand piano in 14k yellow gold, by the Newark jewelers Sloan & Co. This little piano is beautifully made, in three dimensions— its tiny black and white keys were hand-painted in black and white enamel, with a hair-fine brush. This old charm is a rarity. It would make a wonderful talisman for a pianist, a music student, or any music lover! We love the attention to detail here (notice the tiny lyre post and pedals!), and the elegant black, white and gold colorway. We think this looks best worn alone, on a slender chain, but it would also make a wonderful addition to a charm bracelet. Marked 14k for purity, and with the Sloan & Co. lyre.
c. 1930 - 1940
