Mourning jewelry was in vogue after Queen Victorian's loss of loved Prince Albert. Presented is a very special and rare vulcanite locket pendant necklace belonging to a long gone era when people wore sentimental items in memory of diseased loved ones. It was made around 1860-1880's. The locket pendant measures 2" X 1 1/2". It is elaborately carved with ornate scrolls on 4 sides. There is one photo compartment covered with original transparent glass in brass bezel. The locket closes securely. Vulcanite was used as a material of choice for mourning jewelry. It originally is fragile, and becomes even more fragile after many years after it was made. We opened the locket very carefully a half way without forcing to open up all the way. The chain is 18" around neck and by itself is special attraction. It is assembled with 8 diamond shape vulcanite parallelepipeds 1 1/4" long and oval vulcanite links. The closure of the necklace is gold filled dog clip stamped B&D. The necklace and the locket pendant look as they have never been worn.

Excellent antique condition commensurate with age
