This is a Victorian era sterling silver heart charm with a Thistle in the center. The design is repousse with a dark oxidized background that makes the flower stand out. The thistle has been an important symbol of Scottish heraldry for over 500 years and is their national flower. The charm is slightly puffy with a smooth back and is marked STERLING. It has a jump ring so you can easily add it to a bracelet or chain.
Size: ¾ inch
