A very attractive Victorian silver locket on extra long and slinky sterling silver Victorian muff or guard chain. The locket has a different design on each side; acanthus leaves and flowers to the front and a floral spray to the back. It can be worn either way around, completely reversible.
The lustrous flat curb chain is superb to handle, feeling soft to the touch.

Very, very good. A very strong chain with lovely natural patina; there is one spot where two links have been slightly compressed (visible in lower image #2). The locket is great, closes well with a good strong hinge.
Amazing to handle, a silver chain that almost feels 'soft' to the touch it is so beautifully made and wonderful to find it with the locket still attached..
