GOLD
EXTRA FINE
Victorian Padlock &
Matching Charm Bracelet
Betrothal/Antique c.1885

Early bracelets (c. 1885) such as this superb example where often adorned with only a single padlock. They were sometimes presented as a commitment (betrothal) gift; before engagement rings where popularized. The heart-shaped padlock is hallmarked 9c (British for 9 Karat Gold). The bracelet links are also hallmarked 9c gold. A safety chain attaches the padlock to the bracelet and a second safety chain provides added security.
Both the bracelet and lock have matching WMW Ld Maker’s marks. Together they weigh ±19 grams.

This rare and extremely well-hand-engraved heart-shaped padlock measures over ½” x¾” including the bail. The artful floral motif represents Forget-Me-Nots as a romantic symbol. The padlock is in excellent working condition and does not require a key to open.

The elegant bracelet measures over 6½” in length. Each link features a chased motif that is a perfect complement to the hand-engraved padlock. This piece is in excellent age appropriate condition.

This bracelet is from the estate of Joan Munkacsi. Joan, of A Charmed Existence, was an avid and extremely knowledgeable collector and seller of vintage charms and charm bracelets. We miss her.
