A lovely vintage Sterling Silver puffy Heart shaped hinged Locket which is pierced at the front so was perhaps designed to hold a piece of cotton soaked in perfume, much like a Vinaigrette. The Locket is set with marcasites on the bale and on the pierced pattern side and has a shaped piece of onyx on the other side. The Locket is marked on the inside rim '925' and 'FAS' which is probably the maker's mark. The Sterling Silver box chain is also marked on the clasp '925' and on a metal connector tab at the clasp '925 Italy' and the 'FAS' initials. The box Chain measures 24 3/4 inches long and fastens with a spring clasp. The Locket measures 7/8 inches side to side and just under 1 inch top to bottom (excluding the bale).
In excellent condition with no dents or damage and the clasp on the locket holds it closed securely. The silver Locket is quite solid and substantial.
