This is a very interesting locket. I believe the back inscription makes this an early Italian piece. It is solid 14K Yellow gold with enamel accents on the front. The condition is fair for its age. It dates from the mid 1800's. There were no hallmarks found but tested as 14k. The front of the locket is a semi tuscan design with s 3 dimensional flower as the center. It is then surrounded by a fine black enamel boarder and fine etruscan work. The back is inscribed with what I believe to be a Spanish coat of arms. This locket closes and stays securely closed The inside features two old photographs one both sides have their original frames but one side is missing its glass. The photos are very interesting and dated on the back from the 1860's in Brooklyn, NY. They must have been immigrants from that time..... As stated the condition is fair and the locket is a wonderful part of history and beauty....

The bottom inscription translates as: Fortis fall en surrender (Can not decipher last word on inscrition)
