Edwardian locket marked GLP CO for the George L. Paine & Co which was located in North Attleboro, Mass. The company was only in business for a short time from 1909-1922. Their products were mostly solid gold, 10k gold front and gold-filled jewelry. The locket has both frames and glass. It does not appear photos were ever installed. The chain is 30 inches of very dark brown human hair, It has an engraved item that slides up and down chain and matches engraving on locket. The ends of the hair chain and spring ring clasp are not stamped ( that I can see) but are the black of tarnished silver- so silver or silver plate. I was nervous to get testing acid near the hair. A very unique piece!
