Newly restored antique Victorian locket and matching chain in white and gold enamel with a seed pearl. Please ignore the opening photo and look at my new photos; I have had the front cleaned and the old seed pearl replaced.
This locket and chain feature white and gold enameling with wonderful striping: it is vertical on the locket and diagonal on the chain. The crisp contrast between the white and gold is beautiful. The wide, richly engraved border around the enameled center of the locket adds opulence.
The locket is 1-1/2" including its fancy bail and 13/16" at widest. The chain measures 24”. Its 2" extension attaches the chain to the locket with spring rings.
The reverse has three initials, LBF, and the clean interior is fitted with two protective rims for photographs, but no lenses. The locket opens well and snaps closed.
The condition is very good. The front looks great. There is a slight depression on the reverse. Only one enameled link shows a small spot of wear.
