This is a simply stunning 9ct gold round locket that has all over decorations to both back and front. The front has a plain shield shaped cartouche ready for an inscription if desired. The back is fully hallmarked for Chester 1906 and has a sponsors mark of S&O. Inside it still has all the original inners, ie silk backing, clear covers and 9ct gold retaining rims. I can see a stamp on one for 9.375. The locket measures approx. 1 1/8" excluding bale. It weighs 6g. It has a fancy surmount and fancy hanging loop. It has been added to a later 18" 9ct gold chain so it is instantly wearable. This is in such good condition I don't believe it has been used, it is that good.
