Antique 18 PUFFY Heart Charm bracelet Sterling charms sweetheart enamel and more
Sterling Puffed hearts are one of the most expensive and coveted types of charms. This one holds 18 hearts including one that is a fob at the end. It is the most detailed on both sides. Many of these have engravings on the reverse side and some have names.They are hand hand etched and all are marked sterling except the golden one. Many of the marks are on the bottom right and a few are in the center back.
The charms include an irish Shamrock 4 leaf clover, a calla lily, a forget me not, military religious wings with propeller, a repousse heart with an engraved name on the back that I can't make out, a sailboat, a horseshoe wishbone and shamrock, one that looks like it held a little stone, a blue enamel calla lily that has separated ,a wedding bell and 2 hearts and a wishbone. I believe the fob is the oldest with sterl in the center of it ( My guess would be 1800's). This is on the original chain. many of the charms have soldered rings. This came from one family with all their grandparents charms as started and their children who were probably married during the war. This is a fabulous bracelet that carries much love and has been well cared for throught 3 generations. I hope it gets a great home. This will have to be insured wherever it goes so please note that the shipping is only a base price on this listing.
