Antique Locket | Edwardian Sterling Silver Locket Necklace | Book Locket | Hand Chased 925 Silver Rectangle Locket - 20 Inch Sterling Chain

Sorry, this item has sold.

A very nice sterling silver antique locket in the shape of a book, with expertly hand chased curving scrolls to the front and a machined pattern to the back. This is a beautifully made piece.

+ All the details

The Locket
Unmarked sterling silver (not unusual for the era) tested and guaranteed as such. The locket is hinged down one side and opens to reveal a frame that is open to the top so that a photograph or memento can be easily slotted into place. Th bail ring is soldered closed.

Locket Size
.7 x .9 inches or 18 x 23mm and 2mm in thickness.

Very, very good. The full length integral hinge is super strong, the locket closes easily and stays shut.

Weight: 5 grams (locket only)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 20 inch or 51cm sterling silver chain as shown on a life size torso in image 3.

Janne's Notes:
Antique book lockets are wonderful and becoming difficult to find. This is a very nice example, smaller than most from this era.
