Old and beautiful Victorian Mourning locket pendant in a large oval size. This is an antique piece that is thicker than your average locket, it opens from the back so you can insert a photo or lock of hair or pressed flower. Antique piece that I acquired in France. No hallmarks, antique Gold filled item. It measures about 2 inches tall to the top of the loop by an inch and 1/4 wide by 3/8 of an inch deep.
So it stands out from the neck nicely. The hinge is still tight and it opens nicely and remains closed. There are a few spots of discoloration from age to the gold fill loop. Some slight flaking to the enamel only on the back side around the edge of the photo frame. Some surface wear, scuffs, scratches but the black enamel still looks really nice and shiny, not dull, no chips on the front side, no deep scratches.
Some scratching to the gold fill inside the frame on the back side and the area by the hinge has some loss to the gold fill. Due to age, p lease note this is not a mint condition item. Still many years left in this old beauty from an interesting period in history. I dearly love, collect, use and sell antiques so please check out my other listings and thanks so much for stopping by my store!
