An antique locket with cut crystal sides in a very pretty sterling silver frame decorated with a rope twist border. The clear sides have attractive shaped or bevelled edges and the locket secures with a screw down bail top.
Shown in image one with a swatch of vintage sari silk, the locket is also lovely for personal photos or pressed flowers.
+ All the details
Sterling silver, unmarked (not unusual in Edwardian Silver) tested and guaranteed as such.
The clear sides sit into a channel inside the frame, the top unscrews and the sides can be easily removed to insert images etc.
Diamond shaped, 1.18 inches or 30mm across and the drop from the chain is 1.77 inches or 45mm. With lenses in place, the locket is approximately 2.5mm in thickness.
Age: early 1900s
Chain: Found with the locket but a later addition, 20 Inches or 51cm long, stamped Italy and 925 for sterling silver.
Weight: 10.2 grams
Condition: Very good. When removed, the cut crystal sides have slightly nibbled edges in a few places, hidden under the frame - no nasty scratches or cracks. The silver frame is a little misshapen (please see images) but very strong. The sides do not move when in place and the top screws down firmly onto a good thread. Beautiful natural patina to the silver.
I love the shaped crystal on this locket, the curved and bevelled edges are lovely - the first I have seen like this. A fun and versatile locket to hold that special token or memento.
