This wonderful Victorian Aesthetic locket is a rare find, and is in lovely condition.
A genuine antique, it would have been made during Queen Victoria's reign, around the late 1800's.
It's made from solid Sterling Silver that's been painstakingly embossed, and then engraved by hand to the highest quality.
On one side there is a beautiful bouquet of roses, and on the other a checker-board all surrounded by a striking geometric border.
Inside there are two original steel frames, which you can fit two large photographs with ease. Formerly it would have been used the same way, to keep a photograph, or to keep safe a trinket or a lock of hair from a loved one.
We love the slightly edgy, Gothic style and it's quite large so makes a real statement! It looks great on a simple heavy belcher chain.
One can be added at the checkout if required. Please get in touch if you'd like more information.
ERA: Victorian (1837-1901).
MEASUREMENTS: The locket measures 35mm wide x 45mm long
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver, Steel frames for strength.
HALLMARKS: None present. The main body of the locket tests as Sterling Silver.
Steel frames and hinge.
CONDITION: Very Good
This locket is an absolute beauty and in very good condition for its age. The locket opens and closes firmly and has a good strong hinge. The repousse work is impeccable! There are no dents, dings pin-holes or damage of any kind.
There is a little to the over-sized bale which has a tiny ding on one side and there is no glass inside, but the original frames are intact. The real selling point of this locket is that rare and fantastic Victorian Aesthetic, and of course it's authentic antique charm!
