EXCELLENT: This rare Victorian Silver Horseshoe Locket is in fantastic condition for its age, and a true homage to antique silver jewellery. There are a couple of tiny surface scratches on the bale and a barely noticeable dent on the top of the horseshoe, only showing how much this has been loved in the past! But as a whole, this locket has been very well taken care of, making it a rare collectible piece of antique jewellery.
