This beautiful antique Victorian puffy heart charm or pendant is larger than most. It features a scrolled frame front and beautifully hand-engraved initials AC or AL. The lovely script is accented by extra flourishes, quite detailed.
The back is smooth and meticulously hand engraved in beautiful scrolled script with accents. The engraving reads "Kingston" which based on the other North New York charms in this collection refers to Kingston, NY. Or maybe not, there is no way to prove.
This pendant measures almost 1" tall including the ring on the top, by 11/16" at the widest point and 1/8" deep at the center.
It is in excellent condition for its age, no damage to the front. The back has light surface wear consistent with age. It dates from the late 1890s. It is stamped Sterling and was carefully tested.
Beautiful on a simple chain, a charm cluster or on a charm bracelet. It deserves a special place where it can be truly appreciated and enjoyed. You decide!
