An oval Victorian gold locket with beautiful hand chasing to both covers and a glass covered receptacle to the inside.

Not solid gold, this is a 'Back & Front' locket: it has a 9ct gold shell over a stronger metal frame (usually brass). Polished yellow gold with the lovely rosy hue of old gold. The locket is suspended from a faceted or 'kited' original closed ring.

The inside of the locket, one side has a deep receptacle for a memento, the other has a single glass photo cover and retainer rim as shown in image #5, backed with the original royal blue paper.

Locket Size: .8 x 1.1 inches (21 x 28mm) and approximately 8mm in thickness.

Age: late 1800s

Weight: 6.4 grams (without chain)

The Chain:
Presented on a new 20 inch or 51cm chain, 14ct gold fill and stamped as such on the clasp. Image #3 shows the locket and chain on a life size torso.

Condition: Very, very good. The locket closes well and and stays closed with no gaps, hinge is strong and working well. A good strong locket with no flex to the covers.

Janne's notes:
It's lovely to find an antique locket such as this, one that has withstood time so very well. The hand chased design is amazing.
