An antique French puffy heart charm decorated with a three dimensional pansy and containing a Stanhope. The heart dates to about 1900. It is marked for silver with a French poincon. The heart is bordered around its edge with silver beads that extend from the edge. The pansy is in relief and is part of the one piece of the front and back of the heart. The heart has textured background behind the pansy and the pedals of the pansy have etched veins. There is the characteristic off center swirling stem of the pansy extending down the heart and it ends at two leaves at the very point of the heart. There is a raised lens in the front where the center of the pansy is and the glass is also present on the back but it is flat. Unfortunately, the image is missing. All you see is some remains of glue or dirt when you look into the hole. There is a little rim around the lenses and the one on the back is misshapen, but it is not extremely noticeable and is not distracting. There is perhaps some gilding on the tiny rim of the lenses also that is tarnished or worn. The heart also has a hanging bail, but it is the attached bail that is marked. The heart measures 3/4" by 5/8".
