Vintage ROSATO 14K Gold & Enamel Purse/Hand Bag Charm or Pendant
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1990 or so
ITEM: From a charm bracelet I picked up at a local estate, here's a RETIRED charm or pendant from Rosato, an Italian maker of fashion charms. In the shape of a purse - tote - handbag, the charm is fashioned from yellow gold and features enamel in tones of blue and red. Original "clip on" bale is present as well as the round tag.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14KT Italy (B) on the attached tag. There is no ROSATO mark on the charm but I believe this is one of the earliest they made and weren't marking their clips as yet.
SIZE: The bag alone measures 9/16" x 7/8"
WEIGHT: 3.2 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: From what I can see on the Internet, Rosato charms came in 18K Gold (for sale in Europe) and 14K (for sale in the USA). Original Retail was around $350 for the 14K Gold Version and $450 for 18K Gold.
