Pendant in the form of a double-sided heart, in golden metal, stamped and chiseled, contoured by a metal strip with a hoop for suspension at its top. The "goldsmith's art collection" of the Popular Art Museum results, to a large extent, from acquisitions made by the Bureau for National Propaganda (Secretariado de Propaganda Nacional) to several shops in Lisbon, who, in turn, purchased those items directly from their makers in the North of Portugal. Such acquisitions, including this specimen, were made from 1935 and 1940 and were displayed in the folk art exhibitions made in several countries throughout the 1930s, as well, in 1940, in the "Exhibition of the Portuguese World".
