This is a lovely watch-form locket with delicate watch bow above the actual locket which has an engine tooled central panel surrounded with a rim of black enamel and a gold engraved frame. The back is of the plain gold. The locket tests for 14 carat gold. When it is opened it reveals a central feature of a coil of hair under glass surrounded with a decorative frame of gold. It would be most likely that this would be a mourning piece with the addition of the black enamel. This would look most elegant on a swivel attached to a gold chain and worn on a black outfit or one of contrasting colour. The complete piece is in excellent condition for age. Total height including bow 1.25 ins (3cm), diameter 0.9 ins (2.4cm). Weight 10 grams.
