COMMENTS: This holiday ornament was purchased from a local estate. Victorian Heart, from Gorham's archive series ornament collection. There were 6 ornaments in the entire collection. This was the first of the series. It is pictured as we received it in excellent estate condition. It has little to no patina. Sorry, no box or pouch. A beautiful compliment to any tree and can also be worn as a pendant.
The first in the Archive collectible series, the Victorian heart is an intimate and lasting reminder of the true Christmas tradition, which began with the introduction of the Christmas tree to England by Queen Victoria's consort, Prince Albert. Gorham brings back the romance of the Victorian era with the recreation of that age's most enduring symbol, the Heart. An authentic period design taken from our century old archive collection, the Victorian Heart ornament has been handcrafted in Heirloom quality Sterling Silver by Gorham's leading artisans.
