An unusual and very beautiful Victorian gold locket, a somewhat rare piece that will hold four photographs.
It is intricately hand chased with a Forget-Me-Not flower design on both sides, a classic Gothic Revival zigzag border completes the picture. Both sides are beautiful and the locket can be worn either way.
+ All the details
No markings on this piece. It is of English descent, a 'Back & Front' locket - the locket has 9ct gold covers (touchstone tested) over gilded metal internal fittings for strength. The polished gold has the lovely rosy hue of old gold.
Four photo rims are present inside, with a hinged central section that holds two images as seen in image #3. The central section has a little nib to aid opening ( needs a sharp finger nail to do this). Each photo position has a new black card liner and each has a film cover - one is new and clear, the other three are celluloid and a little yellowed.
Locket Size: 1 inch or 25mm diameter with the suspension ring adding another 7mm to the drop from the chain. The locket gently rounds out to approximately 7mm thickness.
Presented on a new 20 inch chain in 14ct gold fill, stamped to the clasp. Photograph #4 shows the locket and chain on a life size torso.
Condition: Excellent. The gold is bright and beautiful, the locket closes with a nice firm snap and the hinges are working well. No dents or scratches, a good strong locket, not fragile in any way.
A delightful locket from the Victorian era. it's very unusual and difficult to find one with four photo positions.
