A beautifully crafted, super quality Charles Horner sterling silver curb chain bracelet that has double links and a heart padlock clasp.
The bracelet in stamped throughout the links with a lion passant for sterling and hallmarked on the end rings and the padlock with a CH makers mark, date letter and lion passant. This is always a sign of quality and that the bracelet and heart clasp is original to each other.
No key is required to open the padlock, the clasp simply pushes in at the nub to open and it locks closed with a satisfying snap. The bracelet has the added benefit of its original decorative safety chain.
Charles Horner (1837–1896) was an English jeweller and founder of the Halifax jewellery business Charles Horner of Halifax. Charles Horner jewellery is sought after and very collectable today.
