Heritagem presents :
This 18 karat yellow and rose gold pendant locket features a flying stork with an other one on the background standing in its chimney's nest. We also can see the roof top of a house with mountains and a sinuous path on the right. This round form matches perfectly with two portrait's pictures. There are two gold circles you can remove to fix the pictures inside.
There is no chain provided here but it could be wear with a long chain or a black ribbon. Do not hesitate to ask and we can find the perfect one you want for. The clasp opens easily and snaps shut firmly. It is in very condition for an item of this period (c. 1905) even though there are few traces of wear, barely visible.
The pendant is marked twice : by the owl, a French mark for 18 karat gold and an other one, which seems to be the maker's mark but it is unfortunately quite hard to read : only a M is legible. It weighs 5,4 gr and measures 34,1 (1,3) x 24,9 (0,9) x 8,5 (0,3') mm.
Art Nouveau's style was strongly inspired by this kind of design : flowers, nature, birds and makes any jewels of this period very poetic.
