Sloan & Co. 1930s Miniature Single Engine Plane Charm in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
An adorable 1930s charm, modeled as a single engine airplane, in 14k yellow gold, by the Newark jewelers Sloan & Co. This lovely miniature plane is highly detailed, with small, open widows, little wheels, and a piston style nose. We think it's a nice reminder of times long ago, when we used to travel to distant lands . . . or else it’s about our current, imaginary journeys! We love this sweet old flyer for its soft, buttery finish and lovely form. We think it 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
Total drop (including bail) measures approx 21 mm (about 4/5"); airplane width is approx 19 mm; weight is approx 1.7 grams.
