The Druids associated the holly leaf with eternal life, what a sweet sentiment. The repoussé is immaculately detailed, right down to the veins on the holly leaves! The large bale is typical of Victorian jewellery, allowing you to attach this beauty onto a chunky chain with ease.

GOOD TO VERY GOOD. This is a lovely Victorian holly leaf repoussé Silver locket offered in good to very good condition! The repoussé detailing has maintained itself beautifully, and although there are two pinholes on both locket doors it is still structurally sound. Inside, the frame has broken in one place, but can still hold a photo in place securely! Importantly the locket doors shut tightly meaning your cherished photo will be safe inside!
