Curated Jewels for the Vintage Collector. Floral and large in size, this silver locket is a beautiful example of the emphasis on floral motifs and nature during the Victorian Aesthetic period. This piece was etched by hand over 100 years ago with different floral designs on the front and back. Most likely the type of flowers depicted had special meaning and symbolism to the original owner.
There is a blank cartouche at the back of the piece which is ready for new initials to be monogrammed so this locket can begin a new chapter. Condition: Very good - the are some broad but very shallow dents to the surface of the locket which is noticeable on close inspection but not as the piece is worn. There is a bit of surface scratching that dulls the sheen a bit but its a modest amount.The inside has no original photo frames or plastic inserts. A bit fuller at widest point. Secure, and shuts softly and firmly, the bale has a split but is still secure. Material Tests for sterling silver. Antique and vintage styles that are typically seen in small or modest sizes get dramatic attention when theyre found in large, oversized, or bold pieces. These larger versions increase the collectability of a piece. _gsrx_vers_837 GS 7.0.15 (837).
