+ All the details

The Knife
There are no markings that I can find. The knife is gold plated with black enamel over a heavily textured pattern that is a classic example of Damascene design. One folding blade, this has a tapered edge but is not well sharpened.

Size: .35 x 1.77 inches or 9 x 45mm (closed)

The Chain: The locket is presented on a new 24inch or 61cm chain in 14ct gold fill, stamped to the clasp as such - seen on a life size torso in image #3.

Age: 1950s

Weight: 8.9 grams

Condition: Very good. On close inspection there is wear to the black enamel, not immediately obvious. The knife opens and closes easily and the bail is very secure.

Janne's Observations:
An intriguing little knife, beautiful, immensely useful and makes a great pendant.
