A fabulous large antique sterling locket with ornate repousse floral design c1900.
The large oval locket has a sculptural raised flower with delicate foliage, the background behind the design is hand textured.
The locket has good depth and can be used for keepsakes or photos, there are no frames inside.
It has a large bail to accommodate the the double link chain, it closes with an oversize spring ring catch.
The locket measures 1&5/8" by 1&3/8", the bail adds an additional 5/8" to the length, the chain is 18" by just under 3/16".
Total weight of the locket and chain is 21.8 grams.
Very well made and in very good condition, it does show some minor signs of wear. There is a slight gap at the top when closed, there is a tiny ding on the front side where the thumbnail is located and the back has a shallow dent on the back. None of these issues compromise or detract fro the beauty of this piece.
Marked on the back if the bail SILr with a line under the r, I have never seen that abbreviation, both the locket and chain tested sterling with acid.
A stunning Victorian aesthetic movement locket with a beautifully detailed floral design.
