+ All the details
This is a gold filled locket with a brightly gilded interior and both original photo frames remain in place with new black card liners.
The locket has an integral hinge at the bottom edge - so well engineered it is perfectly smooth and can barely be felt with a fingertip.
Size: 1.14 inches or 29mm diameter, with a slim profile of approximately 4mm.
Age: late 1800s
Weight: 8.8 grams (without the chain)
Presented on a new 20 inch chain in 14ct gold fill, stamped to the clasp. Photograph #3 shows the locket and chain on a life size torso.
Condition: Very, very good. There is a shallow dent on the back shoulder in the 2 o'clock position, otherwise very minimal surface wear as per the photographs. The locket closes with a nice snap and the fantastic integral hinge is working perfectly. The cut crystal is bright and sparkling.
Bloomed gold is gold that has been acid dipped to give a matte finish; used beautifully in this locket with the pinstriped line work for added effect. A very elegant locket.
