Antique Small Locket Victorian Sterling Silver Maltese Cross Fob Charm VGC   Antique Small Locket Victorian Sterling Silver Maltese Cross Fob Charm VGC
This is an unusual shape for a Victorian locket or fob. It is a a mix of a Maltese Cross and a Jerusalem Cross - I have not come across another one. Marks: The locket is unmarked but my jeweller has tested it and confirms it is Sterling Silver. Condition: The locket has a few tiny patina-like scratches from being used, and whilst I can't see any dings, I can feel (rather than see) that it has a slightly depressed shape from two fingers pressing it shut regularly - not visible when worn.

Internally, it is empty other than for one remaining original slip frame. Glass covers are easily replaced with perspex to hold in photos or hair. It opens easily, clicks shut and stays shut. Dimensions: The locket/fob/charm is 1 inch (2.5cm) in height and width.

It weighs is 11.4 grams. Antique Small Locket Victorian Sterling Silver Maltese Cross Fob Charm VGC. This is an unusual shape for a Victorian locket. It is a smaller locket, and may have started life as a fob decoration on a Victorian, or Edwardian gentleman's fob watch chain. These days it would also make a large, bold and interesting locket charm.

It is made of unmarked English Sterling Silver. It is hand engraved with decorative ivy leaves on one side and a geometric pattern on the reverse. Ivy leaves symbolised friendship and affection as well as wedded love and fidelity, to the Victorians. It may also have been a mourning piece, a memorial to a loved one. Even the edges of the locket have been decoratively hand engraved.

It opens to two receptacles for a photo and/or a lock of hair. Internally, it is empty, other than for one remaining original slip frame. It weighs is 11.4 grams.. These smaller Victorian sterling lockets are getting harder to find these days and this one is in very good condition.
