Heart Pendant from Charles Horner
Openwork silver pendant necklace by Charles Horner with a Chester hallmark that, although slightly indistinct, looks to read for the year 1906.
A wide, shallow heart-shaped outline with a gold enamelled heart at top centre, three upright silver bars connecting to to bottom and decorative enamelled detail to the edges in shades of green and yellow.
Two short lengths of chain lead to an enamelled triangular suspender, with the drop finished in a matching shade.
Measuring between 5.5 and 6 cm long including the suspender and drop with the necklace chain a furher 46 cm in length.
N.B. A brooch in the same design is illustrated on page 60 of Tom J Lawson’s book, Charles Horner of Halifax.
