Vintage Victorian Revival Heart Padlock Clasp Rope Chain Bracelet by Ballou
A lovely Victorian Revival padlock charm bracelet where the padlock is actually the clasp. Made by Ballou, the top of the padlock is a spring just like a regular spring-ring clasp.
The chain is a thick braided rope, 5mm in diameter. The bracelet fits wrists up to 7″. It is in excellent vintage condition.
The back of the padlock is marked “B.A.B.” for Ballou, a well-known American jewelry company that was based in Rhode Island and manufactured jewelry from 1876 to 2009. It is also marked “1/20 12k GF”.
This unusual bracelet weighs approximately 10.2 grams. It is estimated to date from the 1970s.
