A rare, huge Victorian shield shaped cameo locket, circa 1860.

The locket case is made from vulcanite and is an overall dark brown in colour .

Mounted in the centre is a carved cameo head of Zeus, unsure of material but it is not vulcanite and is slightly darker in colour.Very well detailed. 

Opens to reveal 2 period photographs of young women, almost certainly sisters due to their similarity in appearance. There is no glass.

Metal fixed ring to top.

Measurements: 2" by 1.5" (incl fixed ring and at widest points).

In good antique condition; there is a chip next to the hinge at back of case (images 4 & 6); this has no bearing on functionality whatsoever; also some surface wear (light scratches) to vulcanite, commensurate with age & use.

Love this piece...never seen another like it!!!

Please view all the photographs provided, for full, clear detail of item on offer and its condition.

Great collectors piece.
