A wonderful Art Deco gold shell locket with a delicate and ornately engraved design.
Gold Shell means there is an actual layer of gold over the locket, front and back.
The design features a hand engraved wreath of flowers around the top, two flowers drop into the center from the wreath.
The background has a very fine machine turned engraved design that has a subtle shimmer.
Inside are both frames for holding pictures in place.
Hallmarked on the inside with RB with the R backwards and joined with the B, I believe it is the hallmark for R.B. McDonald of Attleboro, Ma.
The locket has a soft patina and a very rich rose gold color, the back is has beautifully engraved initials 'ES'.
Very well made and in excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
It has not been cleaned or polished, it retains the beautiful aged patina.
Measures 1&3/16" in diameter, it hangs from an 24" gold filled curb chain that is marked on the clasp.
A lovely antique gold filled Art Deco locket c1920-30s.
