This gorgeous, big, puffy heart padlock necklace includes the original key. We found it without a chain and added a contemporary long an short hefty antiqued sterling silver chain to keep the larger proportion in balance. The heart padlock is beautiful, patterned with raised flowers and fronds of fern.
The necklace is designed so you can wear the key attached to the original lobster claw clasp but you can add it to a simple chain instead and stack the two necklaces. You will need the key to unlock it so make sure it is safely kept if you wish to wear it as we suggest.
The wearable length is 16". The larger links on the chain are almost 1/8" wide.
The heart padlock is a bit over 1 1/16" tall by 3/4" at the widest point and 5/16" deep at the center. It is marked Sterling on the catch.
In excellent condition, this large size puffy heart padlock is quite rare. The clasp is estimated to date from the 1890s. The chain is contemporary and brand new.
The heart padlock can be worn with other chains and the chain worn with other pendants. It is very versatile!
