Art Nouveau Gold Filled & Rhinestone Locket Pendant by W&H Co
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: A round locket pendant of a gold filled material with possible a higher carat bloom to the top - outside coloring is definitely of a rose gold hue while the inner is yellow gold with rose gold rims. The locket has a sinewy design indicative of an Art Nouveau manufacture and, at the center, a faceted white rhinestone. Opens easily and closes with the requisite "click".
CONDITION: The locket itself is perfect with no problems I can spot. Both inside rims are present and one clear celluloid cover is missing (just cut one from any piece of clear plastic). Also, the center rhinestone does have chips. Replacing the stone is an easy fix provided a jeweler does this OR replace the stone from faux to genuine - a garnet sure would look nice!
METAL CONTENT: Gold Filled
HALLMARKS: W&H Co. on the inside of the locket - Wightman & Hough Company of Providence, Rhode Island (est. 1856 - out of business by 1922).
SIZE: 1-3/16" high/wide.
WEIGHT: 8.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: A stunning bit an antique jewelry!
