Vintage W.H. & Co "1/4 gold shell" locket. This is rolled gold . Wightman & Hough Co were famous for their advertising of "A heart in every locket". They were in business from the 1860's to 1922. This 1.5 inch (30 mm) round hand engraved locket has initials engraved, they are so ornate they look like part of the pattern! I believe the letters are "V V". The locket has one frame, and no glass. The locket closes securely. I find it interesting that the hinge is neither at the bottom, nor on the side but roughly at the 7-8 o'clock position. The locket has pin point dents on the back, and the front is more concave than convex. No large areas of gold wear through.
