We are pleased to offer a wonderful Victorian oval antique sterling silver locket. This is a rather large piece, measuring approximately 2-1/2" X 1-7/8". The front of the locket has an engraved design and the back is plain. Inside the locket there are cut stars around each side. The glass covers are intact on both sides of the locket.
The original owner of this piece used the locket as a mourning piece. Under each cover, on both sides, are locks of hair. Also inside the locket is a little note which reads: "My Mother's". The locket is marked: "STERLING" on the inside edge of one side of the piece.
This lovely locket is in good condition and retains an aged patina. We have not polished or cleaned the locket. There are a few very small, shallow dents to the outside, indicating normal wear. The clasp closes and holds the locket together.
