American, probably Pennsylvania. Circa last half of the 19th century. 4 1/2 x 6 1/3

This amulet charm consists of two heart-shaped plaques, both slightly convex, joined with a narrow strip of silver. The engraved, cursive inscription on the back reads: "Samuel R C Moffat / of Portsmouth New / Hampshire New / England in North / America." Engraved on the front is a cartouche with a shield-shaped heraldic device with several bird images. Charms of this type were made to enclose the caul of the owner and were considered protection against drowning.
