A Sterling Silver locket from the late Edwardian period monogrammed with a beautiful initial 'L' in Gothic script on the centre of front cover. The age blackened silver has a subtle pinstriped design and a very smooth finish. A very elegant and chic piece.

The octagonal locket opens to reveal two photo frames with the original backing of pale gold Moiré silk taffeta. The original celluloid clear sheets remain in place.

Hallmarked on the inside photo frame with the word STERLING and the silver hallmarks of R. Blackington & Co, Massachussets. Blackingtons made beautiful lockets that have become collectors' pieces world wide.

Measurements: the locket is 1.3 inches or 33mm square and 4mm thick with a triangular hinged bale at the top which is connected to the locket. The hinge means that the locket hangs extremely well.

Condition: the front is excellent. Back has very minor wear (see the final photo) but is smooth and lovely to handle. Closure is tight and firm, hinges excellent.

Weight: a little over 17 grams

The chain is not original - as an added extra to the listing for this vintage locket I will include an excellent quality oxidised 925 Sterling Silver chain. The chain is 840mm long but can be shortened on request.

This would make a great gift for a loved one; it is so very unusual and special.
