Sloan & Co. Mechanical Ice Cream Maker Charm
* * SOLD * *
A very rare, miniature, mechanical ice cream maker charm, modeled in 14k gold by the well-known New York jewelers Sloan & Co. This tiny, realistic, bucket-style ice cream maker is made with two rotating, hand-fabricated gears, just like the real thing. The larger gear fits perfectly inside the bucket's opening, while the smaller is attached to the ice cream maker's hand crank— when you turn the crank, these small gold gears rotate together! Our little bucket is made in rose gold; the bucket straps, it's handle, the crank and the gears are made in yellow gold. This novelty charm is incredibly intricate, and we haven't seen another like it— it is marked for the maker Sloan & Co., and for 14k gold purity (on the bucket handle); it hangs from an oval jump ring. Wear it as a dainty necklace (hanging from a slender chain), or as an epic addition to a cooking-themed charm bracelet.
Total drop (including jump ring) measures approx 16.5 mm; bucket measures approx 13 x 9.3 mm with handle, and 8.8 x 9.3 mm witht he handle down.
