Very beautiful Victorian locket, dating from about 1895.It is 1" (24 mm) long, not including the ring, and about 5/8" (16mm) wide. It is not marked, but has been verified by a jeweler to be 12K gold filled.
The decoration is highly ornate with engraved flowers and an embossed border. It opens to reveal two photos; a dapper man with a moustache and a young woman. There is dark blond hair pressed behind the woman's photo - I'm afraid a few strands have escaped in the photo.
The locket is in very good condition with some enamel loss and a very small dent on the right mid edge of the engraved section.
The locket functions well, opens and closes tight. This locket did not come with a chain, but I have vintage chains available a nominal cost. Let me know if you are interested.
