This simple antique glass sphere is actually a locket, commonly referred to as a pool of light locket. A smooth brass accent follows the glass sphere's circumference, concealing a tiny hook like tab at the top and a small hinge at the bottom. Using this tab for leverage, the locket easily parts, and there is a small depression where there are two vintage pictures revealed in each of the two halves. One is a man and the other a woman. When the halves are closed, the locket then seals itself securing the treasure at its center. The glass sphere's fantastic design creates a magnifying effect, amplifying even the tiniest details of its contents. This particular piece is from (approximately) 1860, a time referred to as the Grand Period of the Victorian era. The brass shows a beautiful patina, accomplished by it's nearly 160+ year lifespan. This piece is in very good antique condition; mechanically it is absolutely flawless.
