A silver envelope locket that was originally a stamp holder attached to an Edwardian chatelaine or pocket watch fob, this is a truly beautiful piece.
Both sides are expertly engraved with ivy pattern to the front and fern fronds to the back.
The locket has a hinged, fold over flap that clips secure shut - it would be wonderful for holding a special love note, inspirational prayer or photograph.
+ All the details
The silver has full hallmarks for the City of Chester, England and the year 1905. The maker's stamp is also present, 'BPDC' for 'Boots Pure Drug Company'.
Size: .9 x 1.10 inch or 23 x 27mm in size and 4mm in thickness.
Condition: Very good. This lovely old girl is softly concave on both sides; can be felt rather than seen. The envelope closure is firm and snaps shut nicely and the hinge is excellent.
Weight: 4.5 grams
Presented on a new 24 inch or 61cm sterling silver chain, 925 silver and stamped as such to the clasp. Shown on a life size torso in image 2.
An antique find that is both beautiful and fun - this one is different in that it is satchel shaped rather than the classic horizontal envelope. A lovely piece.
