Antique Locket | 1902 Edwardian Shield Locket | Sterling Silver Locket | Silver Shield | English Hallmarks - 22 Inch Sterling Silver Chain


An exquisite sterling silver antique locket from the Edwardian era, a softly rounded shield. The locket is beautifully made and has a hand-chased pattern of ferns and ivy leaves to the front with a blank cartouche to the center.

+ All the details

The Locket:
Full hallmarks for sterling silver, the City of Chester, England and the year 1902 - both halves of the locket are hallmarked, a sign of a good quality antique locket. Note that although the marks to the back are very worn, the inside front marks are very clear.

The integral hinge is on the right in the style of the era and there are no fittings inside.

Locket Size: .85 x .9 inches (22 x 24mm) and rounds out gently to approximately 6mm in thickness. The heavy suspension ring adds another 7mm to the length.

Age: 1902 - 116 years of age and right on the cusp of both Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Weight: 4 gms with chain.

The Chain:
Presented on a new sterling silver chain 22 inches or 56cm long, stamped to the clasp for Sterling Silver. Shown on a life size torso in photograph #3.

Condition: Very, very good. Mild surface wear and some dark spotting to the inside as seen in the image of the open locket. The hinge is strong and closes tightly with a nice little snap. Lovely natural patina to the silver.

Janne's observations:
I love shield lockets and their symbolic strength. They are becoming so very difficult to find and this is a fine example.
