Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
I find old things like this intriguing.
The brass is showing under a silver metal coating. The bail to hang this from a chain or watch fob has long since worn away.
The locket opens and closes with a "snap". I have no history; I purchased it as is because it seemed so sentimental and gives a personal glimpse into someone's life by revealing what, or in this instance whom, they treasured most.
Approx. Measurements: 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" (unusually large for such an item-leads me to believe that it belonged to a man; because of the female photo and its plain, stark, manly style)
There is a lot of wear; please see all photos- and 1 small ding.
