Sorry, this item has sold.

A large sterling silver antique locket from the Victorian era with beautifully textured applied roses to the front and a deeply scalloped edge.

In the Victorian era, roses symbolised Love - and they still do!

+ All of the details:

The Locket:
The locket has a full set of English sterling silver hallmarks for the Assay Office of Birmingham, England and the year 1888. The maker's mark 'W&CO' is also present. There are two photo rims to the inside with new card liners.

Locket Size:
The oval locket measures 1.45 x 1.77 inches or 37 x 45mm and 6.5mm in thickness.

Age: 1888 - 129 years of age.

Weight: 17.8 grams (locket only)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 30 inch or 76cm sterling silver chain, stamped 925 to the clasp. Shown on a life size torso in image 2.

Condition: Very, very good. No issues at all, no nasty dents or scratches, the hinge is strong and the locket closes tightly with a nice pop. The heavy suspension ring has several plier marks, part of the history of this piece, but is very strong.

Jannes' notes:
A nicely textured, well weighted and very tactile locket - a beautiful old girl!
