Late Victorian Sterling & Enamel Repousse Heart Bracelet
A beautiful sterling heart charm bracelet from the late Victorian (ca1900) era! The piece is a wonderful compilation of 18 sterling silver heart charms, which dangle from a sterling link bracelet. Each of the hearts represents a different design, two with enameling, and all carry a repousse motif. They are all unique and each is simply marvelous. The hearts hang from a sterling link chain bracelet that has alternating smooth and repousse links. The bracelet clasps at a sterling jump ring and has a safety chain that attaches to a padlock style heart for added security. Each heart is marked "STERLING" and the jump ring clasp and padlock heart are also marked "STERLING". Truly a one of a kind piece, this beautiful bracelet would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measures approximately 7 1/2" in length. Each heart measures approximately 5/8" wide and 3/4" tall.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear and a few minor dings, there is no serious damage to the sterling hearts or chain. The clasp is secure and in good working condition. There is some damage to the enameled surface of some of the hearts which is not noticeable when worn. It also appears that there is a piece missing from one of the other heart charms, however, this is also not noticeable when worn.
