An impactful Victorian Aesthetic Silver Locket fully hallmarked for the year 1876, complete with original antique photographs inside.
This charming Sterling Silver locket was made during Victorian times, and features quite a rare and enchanting design with flowing tendrils, dainty flowers and bold geometric shapes. The locket is embossed to create areas in relief, so that the light catches the details beautifully.
The dark aged patina on the Silver does nothing to dull our shine for the piece. To the contrary it makes us love it even more, as we love the authentic antique look and feel to it!
Inside to the right is a picture of an elegant lady, maybe Victorian or possibly Edwardian. And to the left a later photographs, also in sepia tone, of a young boy in uniform, perhaps a generation or to down the line?
We love the history that comes with antique jewellery, especially when they come with original photographs. It's such a window into someone's lives and we feel privileged to see it!
As well as being a fabulously stylish locket, this pendant can also also double up as a multi-purpose jewel. The locket originally came attached to a bow-style brooch top, which you can hang the locket off. We've seperated them out as we think most people will get more wear out of a locket pendant, but the bow fastening can easily be re-attached if you so choose, giving this locket amazing versatility...
No matter how you wear it, whether on a simple chain, on a velvet ribbon, or as a brooch on your favourite coat you'll definitely have our vote!
The chain pictured is not included but one can be added at the checkout or by request.
ERA: Victorian, 1876
MEASUREMENTS: The locket measures 46mm long by 35mm wide
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: Makers mark (obscured), Date letter "b" - 1876, Birmingham anchor assay mark, Lion Passant.
CONDITION: Very Good
An authentic Victorian Aesthetic Silver locket in very good ready to wear condition. The hinge works perfectly and the locket closes shut tight to keep your photographs safe. Sadly the antique glass has been lost along the years, but the original photographs remain and they are just charming! There are two frames inside and two perpex panes.
The locket does have some signs of wear commensurate with its age, most notable a couple of dings to the back. The front looks absolutely beautiful with the pretty patterns and textures, but it's worth noting the Silver is slightly warped on close inspection. That being said it's still one of the most beautiful Victorian aesthetic locket designs, and the only one we've seen like it, so it's very much a one-of-a-kind piece. If you love it make haste and take her home today!
