Sweetheart Chatelaine brooch with a key and double hearts for Irene. Measurements: 3 inches wide with chain fully extended. The small heart is 1/2 x 5/8 inches. The large heart is 1 inch x 1-3/8 inches. It is circa 1910.
Darling little set of hearts, made from fancy finished brass that presents rather as rose gold. Each heart is strongly pressed with lots of fancy work. There are scrolls, curls, flourishes and pie crust edges. They each have a scroll in the center.
The large heart is pierced with an old fashioned skeleton key. The scroll on the large heart has the name IRENE, etched on it. The small scroll on the other heart is undecorated. a very fine chain links the two. Each heart has an independent pin (simple "C" clasp.)
These are quite lovely. The metal is solid and entirely well made. These were often ordered through catalogs like Sears and Roebuck and gifted to a sweetheart. Circa 1900.
