This Art Nouveau locket is amazing!!! Gold filled. The lovely lady's face is done in profile set atop a very detailed cherry blossom. She is wearing a beautiful necklace made of brilliants. She also has a brilliant set in her hair. The hair sticks in her hair match the stamens of the cherry blossom. All done in repousse. The influence is very much Asian. Very popular during the late 1860s to 1900. It was known as the Aesthetic Movement. This beauty is signed F. & B. which is the company Foster and Bailey. A company based in Providence, R.I. from 1878 to 1897. This locket dates to the 1890s. What a gorgeous antique Art Nouveau locket to add to your collection!
1" in diameter
