Antique Edwardian 9Ct Yellow Gold Heart Shaped Padlock Clasp - Charm/Pendant - Dated 1905 -Birmingham #c803
This beautiful antique Edwardian heart-shaped padlock clasp/pendant is a British piece and is comprised of fine 9Ct yellow gold. The padlock is three-dimensional and features a cutout keyhole in the front (non-operational) and a series of stamped screw head accents. The padlock has a locking lever on the top that opens and can be used as a clasp for a bracelet or necklace. There is also an attached ring at the top for attaching a safety chain if used as a bracelet clasp. This loop could also be used for attaching a ring to use the padlock as a pendant on a chain or as a charm. The piece is finished in a smooth gold. It's such a lovely piece!

The padlock measures about 13/16 inches long, 1/2 inch wide and weighs 1.8 grams. It is stamped on the back with a maker's mark that looks like "B&B" but I couldn't make it out completely. It is also hallmarked with a "9" for 9Ct gold, with "375" for 9Ct gold, with a sideways anchor mark for Birmingham and with a date letter "f" for the year 1905 on the back.

This gold padlock is simply superb and it's in excellent condition! The lock mechanism works properly and locks securely. Since it is heart-shaped, I think it would make a marvelous gift for that special lady in your life, representing that she holds the key to your heart! It also could be used to complete a gold bracelet, worn as a gorgeous pendant on a chain, or added as a charm to a gold charm bracelet. It's a gorgeous and versatile antique find!
