One of the sweetest little Victorian gold heart lockets I have found and in lovely order, a very special solid gold piece that would be perfect as a bridal locket.
This tiny puffed heart locket has a finely chased pattern of curving scrolls. The back is smoothly polished.
+ All the details
The locket is solid 9ct gold, with full hallmarks for the assay office of Birmingham, England. The date letter is worn (unreadable), my experience would place the locket as late 1800s. The maker's mark 'H.H' is also present.
The inside of the locket is yellow gold and has a deep receptacle; no photo rims and likely to not have had any. The lovely thick jump ring is solid rose gold.
Locket Size: .55 x .55inches (14 x 14mm) the drop from the chain is .8 inches or 20mm. The locket puffs out gently to approximately 5mm thickness.
Presented on a new, good quality new rose gold rolo chain, 20 inch or 51 cm chain long, 14ct gold filled and stamped as such. Shown on a life size torso in image 3.
Condition: Very, very good. Closure is good with no gaps at all, hinge excellent and a nice firm snap as it shuts, no nasty dents or scratches.
A delightful locket from the late Victorian era that is so very pretty. Well designed, nicely proportioned and expertly made.
