Darling chased puffy heart from c1890
It’s been so beautifully made, in thick 9ct gold and although it’s hollow, it doesn’t feel it.
There is a fracture to one edge towards the bottom, which you can see in the photos. Why didn’t this stop me buying it? I asked myself the same question and to be honest, the imperfection made me want to buy it more.
I feel that it’s truly representative of the human heart, that so many times gets hurt, broken even, but carries on beating. There’s no way I was going to let this little piece of history drop into the melting pot.
I shall keep her safe until she finds her new caretaker.
