One of the most beautiful and elegant Art Nouveau lockets you'd ever wish to meet!
This locket is finely crafted from high purity French Silver and features a lovely repousse clover leaf design in a typically detailed Art Nouveau style. It's a beautiful thing to behold, with curved lines to please the eye and a softly rounded shape to please the touch. It really feels gorgeous on!
The pendant was originally designed as a compact with mirrors inside they have been lost to the sands of time. Fortunately everything else about it is absolutely perfect and it works beautifully as a locket!
At the top of the bale we can see the "tete de sangliers" or French boars head hallmark, which is just charming and adds to this sliding locket's authentic antique charm.
The common idiom "to be in clover" means to have a life of ease, comfort and prosperity, and the four-leaf clover has been sought after throughout history for its magical properties of luck!
This beautiful Art Nouveau Sliding locket comes complete with a new solid Sterling Silver 18" chain.
The perfect gift so you can carry a bit of luck with you wherever you go!

CONDITION: Very Good
This pretty little antique Silver locket is in fantastic antique condition. The repousse clover leaf design has been beautifully preserved and you can still see all the fine detail in the leaves and curved tendrils. There's no damage to it and no dents or pin-holes and the hinge works perfectly so the locket opens and closes shut tight.
The only reason we haven't given this piece an "excellent" for condition is that the original mirrors inside are no longer present, but it's still a real thing of beauty and functions well as a locket as is. If you wanted to you could always ask a craftsman or handyman to add a new mirror or two if you'd prefer it as a compact. The Silver has a dark aged patina around the clover which really brings it to life but otherwise is a shiny mellow Silver throughout. Fits two good-sized photographs inside.
