Engraving is becoming a lost art, but when this slide locket was made it was a sport at the top of its game. The French engravers, in particular, were amongst the best in the world and could create images with engraving that were fantastically realistic, like tiny paintings in metal.
This French silver slide locket is adorned with fabulously detailed engravings of thistles on both sides. Hand crafted in around 1880, this locket contains two frames to hold your photos. The locket is a lovely large size and measures 55.2 mm north to south and 40 mm across; it weighs 16.5 grams. The locket is marked with French assay marks for silver and also bears a makers mark.
