A sterling silver locket from the Art Deco period with a pattern of machined lines to the front giving lovely shimmer with play of light.
This is an elegant and chic locket with a slim profile that is smooth and lovely to handle.
+ All the details
Stamped on the back with the word 'STERLING' for sterling silver, and on the inside is a tiny maker's mark for 'J.M.F.Co'. The inside has two photo rims and original celluloid covers on place.
Note: the 'pocket watch' style top of the locket is decorative only, it is not an opening mechanism. The locket has a simple clip closure and opens towards the back.
The locket: 1.37 x 1.57 inches or 35 x 40mm (including the triangular bail at the top) and approximately 4mm in thickness.
Age: c. 1920
Weight: 12.8 grams (locket only)
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.
Condition: Very, very good. Very light surface marking commensurate with age, no nasty scratches or dings, lovely patina to the silver. The locket closes tightly with a nice snap and the integral hinge is beautifully made and barely detectable on the outside.
A very chic locket with lovely natural patina to the aged silver - just a delight to handle.
