Sloan & Co. Weekend Bag Charm
* * SOLD * *
A dainty, vintage charm, modeled as a weekend bag, by the well-known makers Sloan & Co., in 14k yellow gold. This get-away bag opens to reveal a puffy dress and bloomers, hanging inside— the miniature frock is enameled in pink and white, with black piping and a tiny black floral detail at the neck, and the little bloomers are made to match! This clever object opens and closes beautifully. Condition is exceptional with no enamel loss. We like these little charms worn alone, or in small groups, on a slender neck chain. This one is a rarity— it would be a sweet, sentimental gift for the jet-setter in your life, or for someone who lives with one foot out the door! Marked 14k for purity and with the Sloan & Co trident.
The gold surfaces of the charm are smooth and satiny. Our macro photos are taken in natural light (abundant with shadows), and they greatly exaggerate tiny textures.
c. 1930 - 1940
