Ornate Victorian Revival Silverplate Book Chain Locket and Earrings
Large and ornate, this matching Victorian style locket and earring set features repousse oak leaves in a cut out oval design framed by a small interlocking leaf design. Measuring 2" x 1 1/2", the locket opens to reveal two empty frames for pictures or locks of hair and is attached by a large "O" ring to an 18" rectangular book chain which is embellished with a floral design. The earrings , measuring 1 3/4" x 1 1/4", have been adapted to fit pierced ears with large sterling hooks. The set is unmarked as to maker and silver content as is much of Victorian jewelry. Beautifully wrought and quite uncommon, these pieces reflect the Victorian love of oak leaf symbolism in the mourning theme of life on earth ending.
