SOLD Edwardian Silver Guilloché Red Enamel Locket & Chain
A beautiful locket and matching chain from the Edwardian period, c1915. The locket is made from 800 silver, marked on the bale, and has wonderful red guilloché enamel to the front with little flashes of gold. This enamel is also present on the back and in fact, as there is no gold on the back, you can see clearly the beautiful work that the guilloché technique produces. The locket opens to reveal two removable frames for photos to be placed behind. The inside is gilded to give it a gold appearance. The locket still hangs on its original chain, also silver, with little red guilloché enamel spacers.
Wonderful to find the two pieces still together and in good condition.
