GOOD-VERY GOOD. We have rated this French Art Nouveau heart charm in good to very good condition. Her floral details are crisp and clear to the naked eye, adding bundles of femininity. Upon close inspection, there is some wear to the Gold gilt but her soft patina and buttery Gold hue throughout the rest of the charm disguises this. Along the edge of the heart charm there are some subtle surface marks, but her puffy heart form has held up against the test of time. This piece of Art Nouveau jewellery will make a timeless addition to any antique jewellery collection.
