One of the original pictures is still present in this fabulous etched sterling silver vintage Sweetheart Heart shaped Locket Pendant. The original photo of a beautiful young woman with dark hair. The front of this Locket is etched in a very detailed design with the applied Air Corp Division logo of the wings and propeller. This vintage Heart shaped locket Pendant would also make for a wonderful Charm to add to your vintage Charm Bracelet. There is 14K yellow gold vermeil on the background. The back of the Locket is etched ‘From Erwin To (what looks like) Henny 12-25-42’. Was it a Christmas gift? Opening from right to left signed Sterling on the bottom right side and snapping closed securely. Measuring 1 inch in diameter and weight is 5.4 grams, I have placed a sterling silver jump ring on this Locket since these photos! Lots of patina still present the back engraving can be removed addition your own endearment. Very nice indeed!
