Incredible antique late 1800s Victorian blue enamel locket, no chain. This beautiful work of art measures 1-3/8 inches x 1 inch (35mm x 23mm) including the top loop. It features a detailed tassel design with inlaid goldwork, black enameling, and a single seed pearl in the center. The locket opens on the right with the help of two tiny knobs and center tab to reveal two oval spaces inside complete with original period photos, glass covers, and gold photo rings. The locket snaps closed securely and the backside is solid blue enamel. This piece most likely has gold content, no markings to confirm. Flaws include missing blue enamel along the hinge and bottom portion on back (see last photo), slight cloudiness to the glass covers, discoloration on inside borders, and slight wear (surface scratches) to the enamel front/back as is expected with these delicate old pieces. A gorgeous one of a kind locket to be treasured!
