Beautiful and hard to find period piece, Victorian book chain necklace with cameo pendant locket! The chain is gold filled and in very good condition. The pendant which is of course removable is also a locket, in good working condition; and features a beautiful black and white cameo on the front with fine metalwork, also gold filled (as were most of these pieces). The locket pendant measures 1 & 1/4" long and the book chain is 20" long. Both pieces are true Victorian pieces, probably not original to each other as the book chains were probably sold alone. Hard to imagine a person back then would remove their necklace and use the chain as a book marker in the evening, just fascinating. We have never had one of these before, we just don't find them often.
