This beautiful WW II sweetheart picture locket is heart shaped with a luminous mother of pearl center with a USN anchors insignia. The back of this US Navy themed locket has a pretty etched stripe design, and it opens and closes as it should. These military homefront or sweetheart jewelry items were very popular during the second World War, and are just as appropriate today for keeping a loved one near you. The heart locket is 7/8 of an inch tall and ¾ of an inch across. The nicely decorative fleur de lis bale adds another ¼ of an inch to the drop. The (simulated?) mother of pearl heart is applied and reflects subtle hints of pinks and greens when the light strikes just so. It looks like it was not worn much, and has a light vintage patina. The MOP has a few light scratches but is not noticeable without magnification, still beautifully luminous. It is in very good condition, and still has one celluloid film cover and both frames, so it can still hold photos of loved ones. It is signed 1/20 1) K, for gold filled. It is suspended from a lovely and fine gold filled 18 inch long chain, marked 14K and DEC on the flat connector and 1/20 12 Kt on the clasp. It shined right up with just a gentle love from a polishing cloth. very pretty. In great vintage condition from WWII. Such a great way to honor a loved one serving our nation or a veteran; this marvel is just as marvelously sentimental today as in the 1940’s! A gorgeous, hard to find patriotic memento of times gone by; and very collectible.
