What a superb piece of Victorian Aesthetic jewellery! This large Victorian Silver locket is fine example of the period, with a stylish "button-down" design and deep, textured repousse designs.
The locket was made in England under the reign of Queen Victorian and is fully hallmarked with those charming over-sized antique hallmarks for Birmingham, and a date od 1893.
How remarkable to think this Victorian Aesthetic is still so beautiful after 125 years!
Although its impressive size certainly commands a presence it can be made more or less formal as the occasion dictates. Wear on an extra long heavy Silver belcher chain for casual everyday wear, or pair with a complimentary Victorian book-chain for a commanding look that's guaranteed to turn heads!

MEASUREMENTS: 65mm long (inc. bale) / 50mm long (not inc. bale) x 40mm wide x 15mm deep
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: Date letter "t" for the year 1893, Birmingham Assay, Lion Passant, Maker's Mark "A&L"
CONDITION: Very Good
This large Victorian Silver locket is full of intrigue and offered in very good antique condition. The locket opens and closes well, and stays closed shut whilst being worn. The fine repousse design on the front has been well-preserved, as has the detailed engraving on the back. There is a shallow depression to the back of the locket where it's had a light ding somewhere along its long life, but this is largely camouflaged by the intricate engravings. The front is perfect, with no dents, dings, scrapes of pin-holes at all and the bale is good and strong, ready to wear!
