A pretty Edwardian sterling silver antique locket in a shield shape with a raised wreath of Forget-Me-Nots, double hearts and a ribbon bow. Sentimental, very sweet and nicely nostalgic.
+ All the details
Sterling silver with full hallmarks for England, the City of Birmingham and the year 1914. The maker's mark 'SBROS' is also visible. This is the mark of Sydenham Brothers, in business in Birmingham from the late 1800s. The suspension ring is also punched for sterling silver.
The locket opens towards the back and there two photo rims to the inside with new black card liners and photo cover films.
The shield measures .8 x .85 inches (20 x 22mm) and is 4mm in thickness. Locket and chain are shown on a life size torso in image #3.
Found with the locket, unmarked (tested) sterling silver and 17.25 inches long. The chain fastens with the tiniest little fob T-bar I have ever seen - very cute.
Note: the clasp is a little 'fiddly' to use but very secure. If you would rather a new 20 inch sterling silver chain, please ask.
Age: 1914 103 years of age.
Weight: 7.6 gms
Condition: very, very good. The beautiful integral hinge is strong and working perfectly, the locket closes with no gaps, a nice snug fit. Softly worn and beautifully smooth to handle - there are several minuscule marks to the back as seen in image #4, they do not detract from this beauty. Lovely natural patina to the silver.
The Forget-Me-Nots, hearts and bow to the front of this locket are delightful - perfect for a bride!
