The silhouette of a heart with a slight upturn at the end is sometimes referred to as a witch’s heart.

Originating around the 14th century, this iconic shape was often pinned onto the bunting of a baby. It served dual roles – as an amulet to keep a child safe or was presented to a loved one for protection from evil.

Around the 18th century, the meaning expanded to one of a love token. Bestowed on the recipient they would become “bewitched to fall in love” with the donor.

Created in vivid grass green and clear white paste, each is hand polished and unusually shaped with tapering sides and a slightly arched top.

Of vermeil or gold wash over silver, note the precise coronet gallery; the brooch still possesses its original tube hinge and C clasp.
