Rare 1940s STERLING SILVER Puffy Heart Locket Charm with Red Rhinestone
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: Found on stuffed charm bracelet from the 40s comes this fabulous puffy heart charm with a twist. It's not a charm - it's a LOCKET! Now in all the time I have been selling puffy heart charms (that's quite a few years!) this is the FIRST time I have ever found a locket! With a red rhinestone to the front, the back is engraved "TO BETTY FROM WEC." The writing is in a fine script indicating the age of the piece. The heart opens to reveal a bright interior with two pictures (now removed). Original rims are present.
CONDITION: Excellent with a dark patina to the back and front. The locket does not close quite flush but it does close with a snap and opens easily. It does not open once closed. Rims are easy to lift out but just make sure they are flush when you close the locket.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING on a round tab on the inside of the locket.
SIZE: 11/16" x 13/16" to top of bale not the loose jump ring.
WEIGHT: 4.4 grams - yes, pretty weighty!
FINAL COMMENTS: If you have a bracelet full of these vintage hearts, think of what fun it would be to have a locket. Seriously, I didn't realize it was a locket till I got it home and saw that it was slightly opened. What a wonderful find!
