A delightful gold locket from the Edwardian period with intricate hand-chased acanthus scrolls to the front and an ivy pattern to the reverse side. The contrasts of hand chased pattern and polished gold give lovely shimmer with change of light.
An ornate header and suspension bail complete the picture of this lovely antique locket.
+ All the details
Of English descent and marked 'BACK & FRONT' and '9CT' on the back cover (the engraver has been a little over zealous and nearly covered these marks!) which means that the locket has 9ct gold covers over a stronger metal frame for strength. The locket hinges on the side and opens to reveal a single photo rim and original celluloid cover, with both sides having new black backing card.
Size: .7 x .9 inches (14 x 19mm) and 4mm in thickness
Age: early 1900s
Weight: 4.2 grams (without the chain)
Presented on a new, good quality decorative link chain, 18 inches or 45.5 cm long, 14ct gold filled and stamped as such to the clasp. Shown on a life size torso in image #3.
Condition: Very good. The suspension bail has a little buckling (seen in photos), no dents or nasty scratches to the locket. The locket closes well and the hinge is excellent.
A very pretty Edwardian locket that would make a beautiful bridal gift.
