Witches hearts, or "luckenbooths" as they are sometimes known, were originally worn as a talisman to ward off the eye and protect a mother during childbirth, but in the 17th and 18th century the heart started to be used more as a love token, symbolising the romantic connection between two people.
This beautiful witches heart brooch is a wonderful piece of history made during the Victorian era, circa 1890. It's crafted from Sterling Silver and Paste, and is just full of romantic antique charm!
The brooch has a wonderful aged patina which accentuates the Paste gems. They've been cut just like old Diamonds and sparkle with just as much fire.
It'll look fabulous at the collar of a shirt or blouse, on a coat lapel and would be a lovely specimen for any collector.
ERA: Edwardian (1901-1910)
MEASUREMENTS: Brooch measures 22mm wide x 24mm tall.
The Pastes each measure approx. 2.5mm in diameter.
MATERIALS: Paste, Sterling Silver, metal pin for strength
EXCELLENT: All of the paste stones in this brooch are intact and in excellent condition with no abrasions, scratches or chips. The Silver has a lovely dark patina that accentuates the sparkliness of the stones. There is a little light wear commensurate with age but the Paste still has plenty of dazzle left in them! The pin and clasp are strong and in good working condition. A lovely and highly collectable brooch throughout!
