What a splendid example of Victorian repousse jewellery! This fine antique Silver locket was made during the Victorian era and is teaming with sweet and interesting patterns and textures.
The front of the locket has been skillfully embossed with all manner of things; from tiny flowers, leaves and shells to ornate abstract hearts and flourishes- a pure feast for the eyes!
It's a rather large locket, measuring 5cm long from top to bottom without the bale.
A fantastic statement piece! This fantastic Sterling Silver heirloom locket has been well cared for and looks amazing worn with a heavy Silver Albert chain or thick velvet ribbon.

EXCELLENT: This superb heavy Sterling Silver locket is a pleasure to behold, and offered in excellent antique condition. The embossed or repousse pattern is pristine. No dents, dings or pin-holes and a light patina add contrast and textures. The locket opens and closes tightly and the over-sized Victorian bale is still very strong. It would make a fantastic statement piece for any jewellery box.
