This Victorian aesthetic book chain necklace and locket are both in wonderful antique condition, such a rare treat! All the engravings on the locket are deep and clear with a beautiful light tarnish adding to her antique charm. There is not a single dent or scratch to the body, which is unusual for a piece of jewellery this old. The chain is in superb condition with the Maltese crosses that run the length on one side showing little signs of wear. The bolt ring lock has lost its spring but when it is pushed shut it does hold the locket attached. Both original frames are present keeping any photographs you add safely held in place. The perfect thoughtful gift or special treat for yourself.
