I think of this 1940s puffy heart as symbolizing wedding vows and matrimony. It features a man and a woman clasping hands above a single heart, and the design is further enhanced by the pretty repousse border of fronds and beading. I call it a wedding heart because of the detail of the sleeves - a man's cuff on the left, and on the right what looks like the edge of a woman's lovely bell-shaped sleeve on a wedding gown like those from the earlier decades of the 1900's. Below is the simple outline of a heart for love. I can picture the bride and groom standing at the alter holding hands just like this as they're being married! The silver has a mellow and slightly darkened patina that perfectly accentuates the design.

The back is marked sterling, and is very faintly etched with the name 'Gloria Ann' and the year '1944' (?) in amateur script. With no dings or dents it's in very good condition.

Measures a tad taller and wider than 5/8". While still 'average size', this particular heart is at the slightly larger end of the 'average puffy heart size' spectrum. Most puffy hearts measure a tad less than 5/8" tall by 9/16" wide. Shown in the last photo next to a dime for scale.
