Wonderful antique Victorian 14K Gold Revolving Watch Fob Locket, with an wonderful Intaglio Tigers Eye on one side and Black Onyx on the other. The Intaglio is square in form with a beautifully carved profile of Man with hair, hair ornament and full beard and mustache, which looks Romanesque or Grecian. Possibly a mythological figure. The reverse side of the Locket is square Black Onyx Stone with a beveled edge.
The Locket opens up to reveal a Double Locket for photos, for hair or other memento, which can be placed on each side. Has the original bezels inside (so many times these are broken or missing) and red material behind glass.
The Locket measures 1 1/4" x 1". See photos for other measurement details. Locket opens on a hinge and closes tight. On one edge is a script engraved presentation which looks to read: "W.E. Moling, FEB 1887"
The Swiveling/Rotating/Watch Fob/Locket is in fine condition, though note the Tigers Eye has a thin hairline. The antique Watch Fob Locket was 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 many reflections while being photographed.
