Engraved antique locket, rare and unusual vintage gold locket in a shield shape, back and front victorian locket


Shipping to United States: Free

A rare and unusual victorian antique locket, in a curved shield shape with decorative engraving. An English 9kt back and front locket that opens with two spaces for photographs. Victorian lockets were made with solid gold backs and fronts but the internal parts were made of more durable metals. This is a particularly beautiful locket. Small so ideal for every day wear on a chain. The estimated date is 1880.

Measurements and markings:
The locket is 23mm in height and 16mm in width. It has a stamp on the back "9ct back and front"
It weighs approximately 1.9 grams. I include a gold plated chain with the piece.

The locket is very good condition. The hinge works perfectly and the locket snaps shut.

Additional Information:
Lockets are presented in black velvet boxes, tied with ribbon.
I include a short jewellery report with each piece.
