A beautiful and unusual late Victorian heart shaped agate locket on rolled gold agate bead collar chain necklace.

I have seen many oval agate lockets from the period but never a heart shaped one.

The locket case is chunky with natural carnelian agate panels front and back and a gilt metal frame. Opens to reveal two compartments where photographs may be placed; no frames or glass. Closes securely.

Suspended from an unmarked rolled gold chain with 10 natural carnelian agate beads, interspersed with attractive rolled gold linkage. Fastens with a spring ring fastener.

Measurements: locket is 25mm by 24mm (excluding jump ring) and has a depth of 8mm.

The chain length is 15.75" hence the collar fitting.

A highly unusual piece in good antique condition; a few nibbles to bevelled edge borders of agate on both sides; some natural pitting, spotting, blemishes to carnelian agate beads. All commensurate with age and material.

Please view all the photographs for clear views on the item on offer and its condition.
