William 1V 18ct Gold Large Heart Shaped Padlock with Repousse Detail

Rare Find

A stunning 18ct gold heart shaped padlock that was made circa 1830-1840 in the William 1V period. It has very fine rich and deep repousse work detail of leaves and flowers on both sides. Repousse is shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Chasing, chased work, or embossing refer to a similar technique, in which the piece is hammered on the front side, sinking the metal. The two techniques are often used in conjunction which may be the case in this piece of jewellery. It hinges open so can be worn on its own or teamed with a bracelet or neck chain
