The name MARATHON suits them well. They've been on a marathon of fine locket making since 1897 in Attleboro, Massachusettes.
This Marathon sterling silver locket is not the usual heart shaped kind but a long slender rectangular one. It's etched on the front with a thin pinstripe design with a spider web pattern in the middle. The back is plain.
The inside has two spaces for photos. Each measures about 1 3/8 inches high by 3/4 inch across. We think this shape was originally intended to hold stamps as each side has a thin bracket to hold your photo (stamp) in place.
The inside of the locket is marked MARATHON STERLING. There's a secure snapping clasp and a loop for a chain. And surprise, surprise...we're going to include a nice 18 inch sterling silver chain to wear the pendant on.
The locket measures 7/8 by 1 3/4 inches. It weighs 11 grams with the added 925 chain. Excellent vintage condition.
This lovely locket is good for another long marathon run.
