This is a stunning vintage sterling silver bracelet adorned with 14 sterling silver charms. The bracelet measures 8" in length and has tiny etched marks on each link. It is also hallmarked SP on the center bracelet link on the opposite side and has a working spring clasp that is marked SILVER. There is also a sterling silver tested safety chain. Many of these puffy heart charms are rare and hard to find as some of these enameled colors are not found often. The charms are as follows:
1- A vintage solid heart charm with 3 center beads on both sides and it measures 1/2" x 1/2" and tested as silver.
2- A rare Victorian floral heart charm with a pretty green center stone in a gypsy setting. The heart is flatter than most and it measures 5/8" x 5/8" and is marked STERLING on the back with a beaded border edging.
3- A Victorian green enamel Lily heart charm that measures 5/8" x 1/2" and is marked STERLING.
4- A rare 1940s heart charm depicting a tree and dog house with the words "DOG HOUSE" and it measures 5/8" x 5/8" wide and is marked STERLING. It could be Victorian, but I am not certain.
5- A rare Victorian yellow enamel heart charm with a love bird carrying a message in an envelope to a loved one. It measures 5/8" x 5/8" and it is marked STERLING.
6- A Victorian heart charm with a repousse lion face that measures 5/8" x 1/2" and is marked STERLING.
7- A rare Walter Lampl heart charm with a red orange guilloche enamel and a yellow center rose flower. This heart charm is usually engraved on the backside with someone's name so it is a really nice to find one in this condition. There are no chips in the enamel and measures 5/8" x 5/8" and it is marked STERLING with WL inside a shield which was used most often and seen in the mid-1940s to 50s.
8- A very sweet heart charm of a deer standing on the edge of the water getting a drink. I am not sure if this charm is Victorian and it maybe a 1940s heart. It measures 5/8" x 1/2" and is marked STERLING.
9- A rare circa 1940s enameled red orange pansy puffy heart charm with no enamel loss that measures 5/8" x 1/2" and is marked STERLING.
10- A rare 1940s rebus heart charm of a bee with the words "MY HONEY" would you please "BEE MY HONEY" and this charm is also hard to find without engravings on it.
11- A tiny solid heart charm that has tested as silver with a wavy design on both sides and it is stamped with a maker's hallmark on the bail ring. It measures 3/8" long with the bail ring by 1/4" wide.
12- A small solid heart charm that has a pretty yellow enamel with a hand painted pink rose on the front and the same design on the back with a plain heart. It measures 1/2' x 3/8" and has tested as sterling silver.
13- A vintage c1940s heart charm that has a cupid and arrow in hand with the word "love" engraved on the back and it measures 5/8" x 1/2" and is marked STERLING.

Note: Guilloché is a decorative engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive pattern or design is mechanically engraved into an underlying material with fine detail. Specifically, it involves a technique of engine turning, called guilloché in French after the French engineer "Guillot", who invented a machine "that could scratch fine patterns and designs on metallic surfaces".
