• SOLD Victorian Large Silver Book Locket


    This item is out of stock

    A wonderful large locket from the Victorian period, c1890s. The locket is made from 835 silver, marked on the inside, a common European mark used on jewellery. It is a lovely large size and has etching to the front and the back with a plain panel to the front that could be engraved if desired. To the inside are two decorative frames. Photos would have been slipped in via the gap in the top of the frames. They are closed to the bottom allowing the photos to remain in place. This locket is in good condition; the catch is a little soft, though the locket does stay closed.

    The locket hangs on a sterling silver chain that has a lovely weight and measures approx 22" long.
