Vintage 1940s Locket Blue Stone Gold Filled
Sweet vintage gold-filled locket, no chain. Features a raised floral repousse design on front with a faceted blue glass stone in the center and 3 teeny tiny stones around it (5 are missing). The locket opens on the left with a tiny notch to reveal two round spaces inside complete with both original photo rings and plastic covers. You can see the opening where the stone rests from the inside--most stones were simply affixed to the metal on front, so it is quite wonderful that the opening was made to allow more light to pass through the stone. The locket closes quietly and securely. The backside is inscribed "To Mother from Dad 1941." It measures 1-1/16 inches (26mm) in diameter not including the top loop and attached ornamental bail which is marked "1/20 10K GF." Metal wear especially on the inside where there are some dark discolored and tarnished spots. As mentioned, 5 of the tiny stones are missing and the center stone has a couple tiny nicks in one spot--very small and not noticeable without close inspection. A sweet ornamental locket to be treasured!
