Antique Victorian 18k yellow gold locket with ruby colored stones, a bird with cherries in its beak. Beautifully detailed, the bird, perhaps a swallow, has been finely engraved. The ruby cherries hang on long stems.
Small in size, this little treasure is 3/4" around, measuring nearly 1" including the bail and new soldered ring. The inside is fitted with two frames and one lens. The locket closes with a snap and there is no gapping. Smooth and shining, there are no dents, dings, or scratches on the locket.
The locket is marked with an eagle's head on the reverse of the bail. The ruby colored stones may be paste, but they're too small to test accurately.
