Made to look like a little book, this is an antique Victorian solid 14K rose gold photo locket. The front of the locket is scrolled and engraved around a diagonal oval with the initials A.M.T. The back of the locket is finely engraved with taille d'epargne enamel which has a couple of minor nicks. An open space in the center is blank and could also be monogrammed.
Inside, there's one little photo under glass. It's an early Victorian portrait of a woman. There may have been a photo on the other side but now, just an empty oval space remains.
The locket measures 5/8 by 7/8 inches. It's 1/8 inch thick. It closes securely with a snap. The 'spine' of the book locket is also engraved. It's not marked but has been acid-tested for 14K solid gold.
The locket hangs from a vintage 14K yellow gold chain marked ITALY - 14K. It's not as old as the antique locket but the two are perfectly paired. The chain measures 20 inches around, ending in a secure lobster claw clasp. Together, the locket and chain weigh 7 grams. The locket is circa 1870s. Overall, this beautiful locket pendant is in excellent antique condition.
