Antique Repousse Gold-Filled Art Nouveau Victorian Hollow Heart Charm Necklace with Seed Pearl


This is a beautiful antique Victorian gold-filled heart charm pendant. The Art Nouveau repoussé border, or raised scroll-work, is typical of the Victorian period and is featured both on the front and the back. The front center of the heart is set with a half seed pearl. This charm is hollow, also referred to as 'puffed' or 'puffy' heart, and is among the most popular motifs from this time period, representing themes of love, friendship and sentimentality in general.

CHAIN DETAILS: This charm ships on an 18" long necklace made from new 14k gold-filled fine, 1mm, flat wire curb chain. The toggle clasp closes in front and is a new, 14k gold-filled clasp. (Please note that while this chain and clasp are not vintage, we do have vintage options available; please contact us via email for more information, additional sizes or if you would like to forgo the chain all together.)

CHARM DIMENSIONS: Approximately 5/8" tall without the top loop x 1/2" wide (16x13mm)

CONDITION: This item is in very good vintage condition with some oxidization/tarnish and light surface wear commensurate with its age and which we feel adds to the character of the piece.
