An exquisite French photo locket pin from the Art Nouveau era, circa 1890-1900 with a delightfully ornate frame and a rare mother of pearl back.
The pin is hallmarked "Fix" an excellent gold filled quality of the time.
It still has the Victorian C clasp, though with a tiny improvement which makes it more secure.
The beveled glass is still present.
To change the photo, just push the glass gently from the front, and the back will come off.
The Art nouveau motifs are leaves and flowers, with an elegant filigree area more streamlined and geometrical than the rest.
MEASUREMENTS: Diameter: 1 1/8". (2.8 cm)
CONDITION: In very good condition. No damage. Opens and closes well.
Will be shipped "Registered" from Paris, including insurance and signature at delivery.
