Let's bring back some warm mellow romance in this chilly nano-second world. This antique Victorian locket is a good way to start. It has a warm mellow glow just from the gilded brass it's made of.
It's fancy and ornate with a textured background, raised shapes and scrolls and one faux pearl in the center. The back is smooth. The inside has two 'windows' covered with clear celluloid to protect the photos you put there.
The locket measures 1 1/8 by 1 1/2 inches. The pendant bail adds another 5/8 inch to the length. There are some skips to the gilding around the sides of that centerpiece but we're only seeing it with a magnifier. The hinge and closure are both functioning well.
Overall condition is excellent. Love is in the air...around your neck.
