This puffy heart is a stunner with its soft green enamel. The motif of a dove delivering a love letter is not that hard to find, but the detail on this heart is lovely. Please note the fine feathering on the wings and body, and you can even see the bird's little eye and the folded-over flap of the envelope carried in his beak.

The enamel is almost perfect, with perhaps a small scuff on the upper right edge only seen under magnification. There are no chips or flakes anywhere in the enamel. The color is so pretty.The vitreous glass enamel (baked on) has a translucency and depth of color not found in cold-painted enamel.

The back is marked sterling and is beautifully hand-engraved with the name 'MELBA' in block letters, with a tiny embellishment below. With no dings or dents, this heart is in lovely vintage condition.

Measures approximately 11/16" tall x 5/8" wide. Shown in the last photo next to a dime for scale.
