A large sterling silver locket that is quite remarkable. Big, bold and beautiful with a gorgeous Edwardian script monogram, smooth and superb to handle.
+ All the details
Unmarked sterling silver (not unusual for the era) tested and guaranteed as 925 silver. There are two photo rims and new black satin liners on the inside.
This locket has an interesting (original) removable bail, different to any I have seen before and purpose made. When the suspension ring is removed, the bail fitting can be pushed through and removed; this is possibly so that the locket can be worn in a uniform pocket rather than on a fob chain. (Please see image 2 to see this.)
The Monogram: not easily readable but in my opinion reads 'HA' interlaced with several intricate curlicues - an elegant piece of typographical history.
Size: 1.57 inches or 40mm, only slightly rounded, with a nice slim profile of approximately 6mm.
Age: early 1900s
Weight: 20.3gms (locket only)
Condition: Very good. General surface wear and several very small dark spots but no dents or nasty scratches. Closes with a nice firm snap, easily opened and closed. The beautiful integral hinge is perfect.
The Chain: the locket is presented on a new 36 inch or 91.4cm stainless steel chain in a 3 x 4mm link. Stainless steel is hypoallergenic and the color is a great match for old silver. Photograph 2 shows the locket on a life size torso.
What a beauty - smooth and superb to handle, a locket that looks lovely on a long chain and great layered up with other necklaces.
