Good sized locket 1 1/2" from side to side closed. Engraved with initials M A C with a picture of a woman from the 1930's. You can take her out and put your own loved ones inside. There is some wearing to the gold wash over brass but I only feel that is what adds some character and distinction to the piece. It is signed on the inside frames with a FM Co.
