This lovely locket appears to be a souvenir of Fernery Wintergardens. I attempted to do some research on this and only found one and that is located in Aukland, New Zealand which was built in the early 1900s. I am unsure if this is the original chain but I have had this piece for at least 40 years.
It appears to be sterling silver but has not been tested. The chain is just beautiful with engravings and is in excellent condition and measures 15 inches long and approximately ½ inch wide at the widest. The locket measures 1 7/8 inches long by 1.5 inches wide. On the front of the locket there is a picture of a garden with palms, water and other plants and the words Fernery Wintergardens.
