This gorgeous, hard to find vintage gold filled locket has a gorgeous pale pastel cream-not quite yellow-colored guilloche enamel on the front with lovely pink roses and ribbon tying the stems together, accented with tiny blue flowers and green leaves. This precious little locket has the pretty, unusual scalloped edge design LaMode pieces are known for. The back has the graceful spiral design, a La Mode classic, and very sought after piece. Almost a “hidden” locket, when closed it appears to be more of a puffy heart pendant, the hinge is at the top and the seams are not obvious. It is 1 inch tall and 3/4 of an inch across. It closes very securely. To open, find an indention at the left towards the bottom, looking at the front. Inside, it has both frames and plastic film covers, it is easy to add your own pictures. The enameling is in beautiful condition, the gold filled metal has age-appropriate wear around the front edges, a bit faded from being loved, but the rest of the metal is bright and shiny. The inside of the locket is signed LaMode and 1/20 12K. G. F. for gold fill, as is the back of the gracefully shaped bow brooch pin with hook. The bow is 1 and ¼ inches long and ½ of an inch tall, sturdy and the hook is open for easy access. The two pieces can be interchanged with other pieces you have, very versatile. If you would like a gold filled snap bale to use the locket as a necklace pendant, just let me know, I’m happy to include one for you. LaMode was a brand name for the R & G Company (Ripley & Gowan), from Attleboro, MA. It’s a misconception they were a French Company. Established in 1874, they were known for their expert enameling. It is in great condition, with age appropriate wear and patina, still shiny and pretty. Just as sentimental today as all those years ago!
