This antique heart is comprised of cast iron and Hand Painted with wonderful folky artwork and dated front and center 1896. It's probably Norwegian, but we are not certain. This is a Wonderful Valentine or Anniversary gift or even a nice gift for a friend. Someone took the liberty of soldering on a metal hook at a later date, which actually comes in quite handy for hanging. This Nordic piece of folk art is 4-1/2" long x 3-1/2" Wide x 3/4" Deep.
