Super Antique Large Victorian Sterling Silver Locket H/M 1882 Aesthetic Period. A beautiful, large Victorian sterling silver locket, from the aesthetic period.
Hallmarked Birmingham 1882 with makers mark F. W the piece is marked to inner case.. Back of case and bail, some marks a little rubbed with age. The front of the case is incredibly well designed by a clearly talented silvermith; a central oval panel is engraved with thistles; the highly elaborate surround has forget me not flowers within raised scrolls and triangles. The back is plain silver.
The interior has a framed photograph of a lady with perspex cover to the right side; the left has paper/card slips with silver frame but no cover (easily replaced). Measurements: 2.5" by 1.4" (including bail) with a depth of 0.25. In good antique condition; front of case has a slightly concave appearance, couple of small dings to back & inner locket case has slight warping where left compartment meets the hinge (noted for accuracy). Please view all the photographs for clear detail of the item on offer and its condition.
Box shown is for display ONLY and is NOT included in the sale. Looks beautiful in wear; a true testimony to the great skill of the long lost Victorian silversmiths.. Buyers should read the description in full and study all the photographs (which themselves form part of the description). The images can be enlarged to show more detail.
