Antique Victorian Art Nouveau locket with repousse and chased design. Romantic crescent moon and female form in Gold Fill. Unique celestial theme on modern gold fill chain. Wonderful for gift giving to bride, graduate, sweet sixteen or loved one.
An enchanting estate find that is circular in form and stylized ornamentation that is accented with paste stones. The celestial design is gorgeous with the sparkling crescent moon placed at the bottom edge accented with the outlines of clouds. The concave center is graced with the female image pushed out with a repousse technique. The reverse of the locket has been engrave with a beautiful flowing hand applied script . I believe the initials are MLP.
The locket opens north to south and closes tightly. Inside you will find two places to hold photos but no frames or covers. The one and one eighth of an inch in diameter locket has been placed on a modern 24'' gold fill chain by the previous owner. This estate necklace has been well cared for and exhibits age appropriate wear.
