This extra large late Victorian or early Edwardian puffed heart pendant is made from sterling silver, and beautifully engraved on the front with three initials, and some flourishes. I think the initials are A P M, but it could also be A I M; the back side of the pendant is blank, but for the material mark of sterling in the upper left curve of the heart. This makes a beautiful dimensional pendant, or could be added to a charm bracelet, or a collection of puffed heart charms.
Condition: This antique Victorian heart pendant is in good vintage condition, with two slight dents on the back of the heart, and a slight dimple on the front of the pendant, just to the left of the A. I have polished it to remove some of the tarnish, but have not polished it to bright silver, to preserve the vintage patina of the piece. There are slight scratches to the surface, commiserate with wear of a previously loved item. If you would like more information on these areas of condition, or additional pictures, please send me a message.
Size: Height: approximately 1 3/8", including the bail
Width: approximately 1" at the widest point
Thickness: approximately 1/8"
Chain: 18" sterling silver
I occasionally have some flexibility in terms of the listed price on an item. If you would like to make an offer on an item, please send me a convo.
I generally do not ship every day, but on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you need your item by a specific date, please convo me, and I may be able to ship it on an earlier day, as well as provide a quote for expedited shipping.
Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $3, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
