What makes this BOLD Late Edwardian ~ Early Art Deco Fob Photo Locket so special is that it is 8 Sided! ANTIQUE silver locket has 'pinstripes' down the front - reminds of a fashionable suit from the period. There also are CRISP fancy period designs that resemble triangles around the edge of the front as well as both sides of its bail (similar to those found on a pocket watch of the same era). It may have originally been attached to a gentleman's pocket watch chain and worn as a fob.
The locket is hinged on the bottom & the latch at the top reminds me of a clasp on a lady's purse. It opens as intended and closes tightly with a 'snap'. The bail also is hinged... making it easier to operate the clasp. Front has an elongated 6 sided "Diamond" shape cartouche for an Initial or Monogram... it has had not been utilized. The back of the locket has been personalized in BOLD engraving. The letter in the center is an "H" and on the right is a "B". I really am not sure what letter is on the left side.
C.1915 -1925 Locket MEASURES 1 3/4 Inches N-S (including bail for pendant or watch chain), just Over 1 3/8 Inches E-W and retains its original photo frames. I did not completely dismantle the locket however; I did not see any Markings as to Mfr. or metal content. I am fairly certain it is Solid Silver (there are no signs of wear through to a base metal) but I did not file into it. ANTIQUE Silver Locket is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! NO DINGS, DENTS, CRACKS, REPAIRS or Excessive Wear... has not been polished recently & retains old dark Patina that accentuates all of its design elements.
100 year old fashion accessory is PERFECT for a man or a woman... teen or adult. Would make a GREAT Addition to your Antique Locket Collection!
