Beautiful Meiji-era Japanese Skakudo Double Sided Locket - Top Quality and Beautiful!! VERY RARE
This extraordinary piece is being sold out of my very private, personal collection. I have always cherished it for its exquisite beauty and quality workmanship
Beautifully made; gorgeous style, detail and craftsmanship
Bamboo frames the shakudo locket which has gold, silver and bronze decorations applied to it. (Shakudo is a lacquer-shaded alloy)
Birds and flowers, including lilies, adorn both sides which show different scenes
The locket has 2 hinges so both sides open and can hold photos, if desired
There is a ring on top ready to be strung onto a chain.
Very nice antique condition with only minor wear commensurate with age and use
This is truly a special and rare antique piece of history - a conversation piece
Measures (with bale) 1.75 inches (4.4 cm) X 1.25 inch (3.2 cm) X 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) deep; weighs 18.5 grams
Our photos are large and clear. We ask you to review them all and to evaluate each piece based on both its description and the images. It is our goal that you absolutely love what you purchase from us! Thanks!!
