Neck Chain with Large Slide Superb Mourning Locket with Hair & Pearls

Neck Chain with Large Slide Superb Mourning Locket with Hair & Pearls

This is one of the best Victorian hair lockets I have ever seen and certainly owned. The huge locket is a gold wash, probably over silver. The hair is done in a gorgeous a Prince of Wales feather palette with gold wire and seed pearls. The auburn hair is set on an ivory colored matte. I have not opened the locket so can't tell you whether it's ivory or celluloid or some other medium. The locket is engraved on the back, "In Memory of Our Darling Boy Bruno Herman Barber born July 29 died Dec 3, 1894." As a piece of Victorian Mourning jewelry this is museum worthy. As a piece of jewelry to be worn and enjoyed it is glorious and will garner compliments every time you wear it. You could easily separate the pieces and use the chain with another locket or pendent. The slide on the chain is embellished with a row of seed pearls and has very elegant chased work on the top side as well. The back is a simple high polish.

DIMENSIONS: LOCKET: 3" x 2 ½ " CHAIN: 60" long SLIDE: 1 1/8" x ¾"

CONDITION: All of the pieces to this necklace are in original condition. They show beautifully. PLEASE NOTE: I have added an $3.00 to the shipping charge for tracking and signature confirmation.
