Religious Antique Victorian French 800/900 Silver & Eglomise Locket Pendant - Virgin Mary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From France, here's a silver locket pendant featuring an eglomise front and a printed back. First, let me explain eglomise - it's a design placed under glass that is a print but is hand painted within the lines; in this case, the front design is the Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus and infant John the Baptist. The back of the locket has a small Italian print (Raphael I think) of the Madonna & Child. The locket pendant opens to reveal the original blue papers still in place; perhaps a bit of hair or a keepsake once rested on the inside.
CONDITION: Excellent! No disintegration in any part of the images.
METAL CONTENT: Being French, either 800 or 900 Silver.
HALLMARKS: One French poincon (punch mark) at the back of the bale denoting silver content and country of manufacture.
SIZE: 3/4" high/wide NOT including the bale/jump ring
WEIGHT: 2.1 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Absolutely beautiful and VERY hard to find in such excellent condition! All that's needed now is the right chain (mine is for display purposes only).
