Wonderful antique Victorian 14K Gold Revolving Hard Stone Cameo Fob Locket / Intaglio Bloodstone Locket. The Cameo is black & brown. The carving depicts the profile of a Warrior and wearing what looks to be a Centurion Helmet. Is carved from one stone. The reverse side of the Locket is a beautiful dark green and red flecked Bloodstone. Carved into the surface is a remarkable Intaglio of the letter R or K (in old English).
The Locket opens up to reveal a double Locket for photos, hair or other memento. Inside reveals the underside of the Bloodstone and a Victorian photographic portrait of a Woman, both behind glass and the original bezels which are intact (so many times these are broken or missing).
The Locket opens on a hinge and closes tight. The Swiveling/Rotating/Watch Fob/Locket is in fine condition, albeit some minor nicks on the edges of the background of the Hardstone Cameo. The antique Double Fob Locket measures 1 5/8" x 15/16". The metal assayed to determine the carat at 14K.
Shows well in the photos, note some a bit blurry. Prettiest and more detailed in person! Photographs taken with and without a camera flash and picking up reflections while being photographed.
