Antique Stamp Case or Sterling Silver Locket | Edwardian Era Hinged Chatelaine Case | Art Nouveau Lily Design - 20 Inch Sterling Chain


A sterling silver stamp case from the Edwardian era with a hinged lid. The case was originally made to attach to a woman's chatelaine clip - fabulous as a unique locket to hold that special message or love token.

A very nice antique stamp case with exquisite repoussé pattern of Art Nouveau lilies and buds on each side. A very tactile locket pendant.

+ All the details

Stamped 'STERLING' on both sides of the hinged cap, with a maker's stamp that is not quite legible.

Size: The case is a softly rounded rectangle measuring 1 x 1.15 inches (25 x 29mm) and 5mm in thickness. Locket and chain are shown on a life size torso in image #2.

Age: very early 1900s

Weight: 5.8gms without the chain

Condition: Excellent. No issues at all; the lid snaps shut securely and stay closed. A very well made stamp case with nice natural patina to the silver.

The Chain:
Presented on a new stainless steel chain 34 inches or 86cm long. Stainless steel suits the color of antique silver well and is hypoallergenic.

Janne's observations:
Nice for a collector of Victorian silver cases or just beautiful as a fashion accessory. The repoussé silver on this piece is wonderful!
