A very attractive Victorian silver locket, smooth and lovely with hand chased lacy decoration. The locket has a slightly different design on each side with one side having a blank oval cartouche, ready for that special initial.

+ All the details

The Locket:
This is a sterling silver 'Front & Back' locket ie. the front and back covers are sterling silver (tested and guaranteed) over a strong silver-plated frame (likely to be plated brass). The fat suspension ring is also plated.

The inside of the locket has two photo retaining rims with original silks in place, one side has the original glass cover. Note: there is new card packing behind the fabric (the originals were unusable)

Locket Size: 1 x 1.18 inches or 25 x 30mm and gently curving out on both sides to approximately 9mm in thickness

The Chain:
The locket is presented on a new sterling silver chain, stamped for 925 sterling on the clasp. 30 inches or 76cm long. Locket and chain are shown on a life size torso in image #2.

Weight: 55.6 grams (locket and chain together)

Age: Late 1800s

Very, very good. A very strong locket in good order - no dents or nasty scratches, closes well and the hinge is excellent.

Janne's Notes
The lacy hand chasing on this locket is amazing - testimony to the skill of the Victorian silversmith.
