A beautiful Victorian 9ct gold back & front sentimental locket.
Unmarked, the locket has a gilt metal frame with 9ct gold panels to back and front, very typical of the period.
Unusually, both sides of the locket have identical decor, with a sunken engine turned centre and a raised ribbon cartouche with the word REGARD. The outer border of the locket is of raised facets. True testimony to the workmanship & skill of the Victorian working jeweller....no attention to detail spared, even to the back of the case!
The interior holds two framed compartments, with a black material inner and no glass to either side. Can easily be replaced with perspex.
Locket case closes securely and has a jump ring to top for wear on a chain.
Measurements: 30mm by 25mm with a depth of 7mm (case only, excludes top ring).
In good antique condition; some wear to outer faceted border commensurate with age & use.
Please view all the photographs for clear detail.
