Large Victorian Painted Portrait Locket

{circa 1870}
Warm gold colored locket with ornate Etruscan influenced applied decor and granulation. A hand painted full body portrait of a woman is set on the front. It appears to be painted porcelain.

Large bail with hook style back - meant to hang from an equally ornate book chain necklace.

The locket opens and closes properly. The original glass frames and embossed paper backings are contained within. Each of the frames can be easily removed to insert your own mementos.

This locket measures 2 1/4" high with bail and 1 1/2" high without the bail.
It measures just over one inch wide.

It weighs approximately 19 grams.

The gold has some tarnishing on the front and some wear on the back side. This piece is uncleaned and unpolished.

It is neither marked nor tested.
