A silver envelope locket that was originally a stamp holder attached to an Edwardian chatelaine or pocket watch fob, this is an intriguing piece.
Embellishment is very simple and understated with a 'stitched' border and tiny flourishes to the front.
The locket is in the shape of a little satchel or envelope and has a hinged 'envelope flap' that clips secure shut - wonderful for holding a special love note, inspirational prayer or photograph. Both sides have a smooth polished finish.
+ All the details
The envelope is stamped to the inside with full English hallmarks for sterling silver, the City of Birmingham and the year 1904. The maker's mark is also present - 'BPDC' for the Boots Pure Drug Company. The lovely fat suspension ring is stamped for sterling with the Lion Passant of England.
Size: .85 x 1.15 inch or 22 x 29mm in size, approximately 4mm in thickness.
Condition: Very good. Some tiny surface marks (possibly baby teeth marks :) but no nasty scratches, splits or cracks. Closure clips into place firmly and the hinge is excellent.
Weight: 5.4 grams
Age: 1904 - 112 years of age.
The envelope locket is presented on a new sterling silver chain, 24 inches or 61cm long, stamped to the clasp for 925 silver. Pendant and chain are shown on a life size torso in image #2.
I always look for good quality Edwardian silver stamp envelopes - useful, fun and very beautiful as a locket, This one is unusual in that it is centrally suspended rather than corner hung.
