Vintage 18k Gold Tarus the Bull Enameled Astrological Charm
* * SOLD * *
A vintage charm, made in 18k gold and featuring a sweetly-rendered, line-drawn image of Tarus the Bull. This charm is eight-sided (roughly a square, with nipped corners). The glassy enamel work is done in warm sepia and golden-orange; it gives the impression of depth, so that the bull appears in the foreground, standing before a textured, starry field. I like the balance and the composition here (the little starts and the delicately textured field are especially winning), and the weightiness of the charm. Marked 750 for 18k gold. Jump ring is nice and heavy. This was culled from a big, luxurious charm bracelet, but it is easily large enough to wear as a pendant.
c. 1950 - 1960
Measures approx 22.25 x 22.25 (excluding bail). Weight is approx 3.7 grams.
