VERY GOOD. A splendid antique French 18ct Gold and Black Enamel locket! This piece is in very good condition overall and has a wonderfully gothic feel. The black Enamel has kept tremendously well over the course of its life, and has no chips and only a few scuffs to the bale. The glass windows are crisp and clear allowing you to easily see the contents! You can open the locket and place your own pressed flowers or photos inside. We think this is a divine piece of antique jewellery.
