Large Antique Sterling Chinese Export Dragon Locket

This treasure dates to 1910 and is attributed to the maker Luen Hing, Shanghi, China.

There are highly detailed dragons on both sides, facing each other when open. One dragon holds a cartouche with the stylized script initial 'B'.

BIG at 2 1/2 long by 1 1/2 wide

HEAVY - Weighing in at 43 grams (1.5 OZ)

The locket is marked 'LH' ( Luen Hing Shanghai) '90' and two Chinese characters for Kulun MT/Kunming City.

This once had a gold wash which is almost lost, particularly on one side. I have had this tested and it has proven to be sterling. It may not be 925 but 900 as the mark indicates, but it does test as sterling. No dings or dent, as the locket is pretty heavy and solid. There is a bright gold wash inside and there is one frame and a plastic cover. It is difficult to remove the frame and I don't want to force it.

A beautiful piece!
