A hard-to-find sterling silver puffy heart charm, the top features a raised (applied) tulip with red petals and green leaves in a luminous vitreous enamel. The red shades to orange at the edges. The enamel is in unblemished condition. The heart has a lovely unpolished patina. I've tried to show several pictures, many from the same angle but with slightly different lighting. In the most focused photos, the tarnish looks grimy, but to the naked eye there is just a wonderful darker patina around the tulip that makes the design really stand out. Cleaning is at the discretion of the new owner, but I would leave it as is. It's lovely!
The back of the heart is marked sterling and has been nicely engraved with the initials 'EJM" in block letters. This is a very thin, flatter heart which leads me to think it may be Victorian, but if not, certainly 1940s era at the latest. There is a small dent/crease on the right edge next to the 'M'. On such a flat heart, it is more felt than seen. Overall, this pretty heart is in very good antique or vintage condition.
Approximately 5/8" tall, average puffy heart size.
