Offering for sale a lovely vintage sterling silver heart charm, marked on back sterling. It features a lovely set of wedding or Christmas bells hanging from a ribbon, and surrounded by ornate repousse or embossed designs with a touch of metalwork beading. This precious heart measures 13/16" long, and is in very good condition. This came from a necklace of over forty sterling and puffy hearts I bought over twenty years ago from a friend who was an avid heart collector and also an antiques dealer. I have not polished this heart in quite a while, as I prefer the patina of the old silver, but it can be much more shiny if one desired to do so. On the puffiness scale, this one is only moderately puffy, typical of the larger ones with the ornate designs. The detail in the metalwork on this one is quite fine. The photo makes it look like a dent in the back, there is a slight indentation, but appears to either be the original shape or the slightest of indentations.
