This lovely antique French locket is hallmarked for 800-900 silver quality It contains a black and white photo of the Virgin and Child. I am dating it to circa 1900.

The round locket measures 13/16” (2.1cms) across and weighs 3.2 grams.

The front is glassed over and contains a photographic copy of an old master painting of the Virgin and Child.. I do not think it original to the piece but it looks very beautiful. It is mounted on plain silver with a corded surround. The silver has traces of an original gold wash.

At the top is a ring which carries the boar’s head French hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. There is also a maker’s mark. A bail is attached for a chain.

Under glass the back is lined with red, ribbed material. I have not attempted to open the locket.

In fine antique condition , this charming locket will arrive in a gift box.
