A Victorian era antique locket with with a satin finish gold shell inset with rhinestone leaf sprays - lovely to handle, classically beautiful and very elegant.
+ All the details
Satin finish gold fill on the outside and matte finish on the inside, yellow gold with the lovely rosy tint of old gold. The locket hinges at the bottom edge and opens towards the front. Both original photo rims with celluloid slip covers are in place on the inside.
There is a heart-shaped "W&H Co." mark inside the locket - this piece was made by Wightman & Hough Co. whose very cute slogan was "There's a heart in every locket", the company operated from 1856 to 1922. For historical interest, I've included one of their advertisements in image #3.
Locket Size: 1.18 inch or 30cm diameter with a slim profile of approximately 4mm.
Weight: 10.7 grams (locket only).
Condition: very, very good. The rhinestones have darkened to near black but there is still some nice sparkle happening. No dents or scratches - the locket has been well cared for. Closes tightly with a nice pop, the beautiful integral hinge is excellent.
Presented on a new 20 inch or 51cm chain in 14ct gold fill, stamped to the clasp. Photograph #4 shows the locket and chain on a life size torso.
A gorgeous old girl with lovely contrasts of texture from the raised rhinestones and softly polished gold.
