This is a unique, antique French double sided locket. It has a lovingly carved image done in mother of pearl. One side has the image of a dog and the reverse has a lyre and torch. The lyre symbolizes love and the torch everlasting devotion.

How remarkable to find in this superb, all original condition. The locket opens and closes securely.
