This unique Gothic Revival locket is truly a one of a kind!
Crafted in the 19th Century during the Early Victorian Era, it features so many aspects so typical of the period. It has a rare double fold out feature and a beautifully elegant navette shape, as well as extremely fine hand-etched designs on both sides, and is made from 9ct Gold.
One side features exquisite acanthus leaves and foliage, the other an interwoven star or flower shaped pattern with a central oval monogrammed "DH".The person who made it has shown an extreme attention to detail. When you open the locket fine mille-graine can be seen all around the edge.
It has room for two large photographs inside and it opens and closes properly, ready to wear!
Undeniably beautiful, this locket will make a unique and thoughtful gift.
Chain not included (but one can be added at the checkout if required).
MEASUREMENTS: The locket is a substantial size, measuring approximately 21mm wide x 41mm tall including the fairly large bolt ring.
Weight: 6.9 grams
MATERIALS: Tested as 9ct Yellow Gold back & Front.
HALLMARKS: None present
CONDITION: Very Good
Circa 1840. This locket is in very good antique condition. It's rare to find a locket of this style and age in such good condition! The hinge is in good working order and the locket opens and closes shut tight- ready to wear. The bale is sturdy and strong enough to withstand daily wear with ease.
The original glass that would normally be found in the central panel has been long lost. There are two very small splits in the locket; one at the 4 o'clock position of the foliate engraved side, and another at the 12 o'clock position of the monogramed side. You cannot see them when the item is worn, and the structural integrity of the locket is maintained. There are no pin-holes or dents in the locket what-so-ever. For an item over 150 years old we think she looks incredible!!!
