Edwardian FRENCH SILVER Puffy Heart Charm - Basket of Flowers
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: From France, here's a lovely silver puffy heart charm featuring the same design both back and front - a Basket of Flowers! A simple but classic French design.
CONDITION: Well, to me, it has the perfect patina to the silver and while there are no major dents or dings, there is a slight inward curve to both sides of the piece. I don't think the charm has been squished or flattened or anything like that, I think it is just the way the charm was made - not quite as "puffy" as American hearts are.
METAL CONTENT: Being French, either 800 or 900 Silver.
HALLMARKS: Just a shadow of a poincon (punch mark) on the bale. Any stamping on the body of the charm would REALLY create an indent!
SIZE: 1/16" x x 15/16" (to top of bale NOT jump ring)
WEIGHT: 1.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Classic! And I only have one!
