Victorian, c.1900

A superb antique niello silver locket, with a chequerboard pattern and in remarkably good condition. Niello is the name given to a certain mixture of copper, silver, and lead that has a black colour. It's a technique that dates back as far as ancient times, but regained popularity in towards the end of the 19th Century. This locket opens, revealing two photographs - easily replaced with your own if desired.
