Sloan & Co Picnic Basket Charm with Wine & Fish
* * SOLD * *
A dainty, vintage, articulated charm, made in 14k yellow gold by the well-known New York jewelers Sloan & Co. This little charm is modeled after a wicker picnic basket— its lid opens to reveal a tiny fish, and a bottle of wine, stored inside! These gold morsels are anchored to the inside of the picnic basket with a fine chain. Once they are tucked away, the basket's lid snaps securely closed. This little charm has a chain "handle" that is suspended from an oval jump ring. Marked 14k, for purity, and with the Sloan & Co lyre. Who doesn't love a picnic?!
c. 1930 - 1940
Total drop measures approx 20 mm (about 3/4"); basket measures approx 6.65 mm x 12.2 mm.
