This rare antique Victorian Aesthetic Movement sterling silver rectangle shape locket was handcrafted around 1800s.
Besides the normal wear, the overall condition is extremely impressive, considering it is over 100 years old. This locket has light superficial scratches, but it is in great shape with a sturdy and firm hinge and closes securely with a snap. This locket opens to reveal two original Silver frames with oval glass to keep photos securely stored away.
There are no repairs, with 2 minuscule dings on the backside top left corner but this does not spoil the integrity or beauty of this locket.
It is in excellent antique condition with slight patina. It has not been professionally cleaned. I leave this up to the new owner. I have only gently wiped with soft jewelry cleaning cloth.
Mark(s): None. This locket was acid tested as sterling silver.
Size Approximately: 1" x 1.70" inches including the loop.
