This is a beautiful antique Victorian large solid silver engraved locket hanging on an antique Victorian chain. 17.5 inches long and it is stamped'sterling' on the secure clasp.
The large oval locket measures 3.5cm long and 2.8cm wide and it hangs on a wide round bail. Please note, due to it's age, the locket is an unmarked piece but tests as silver. The locket and chain weigh 20.09g.The locket opens via a catch at the side and has room for two large oval pics inside. I have left the photograph of a young boy and a lock on hair inside the piece but please note they are not from the Victorian era. One side of the locket is adorned with a spray of ivy leaves in the centre with a geometric pattern running through the centre. In the Victorian era the ivy symbolised fidelity, friendship and eternity. The other side of the locket is also completely adorned with an intricate engraved pattern of scrolls with a monogram centre. This rare vintage find is in excellent condition.
