A silver antique locket from the Victorian era, that is hand chased and very, very different to any I have seen before. It has an obvious Arts and Crafts aesthetic, solid and substantial.

This rare beauty has the maker's mark 'DH & CO' on the back, not engraved (if you would like to see the back please contact me) smooth and lovely to handle. There are no hallmarks on the locket and it is testing at a grade slightly lower than sterling - not unusual for artisan made pieces of the Victorian era.

There is lovely detail to the screws and keyhole shapes, deep hand chasing ensures this is a very original piece. The inside of the locket has both silver photo frames in place, one is split but looks intentionally so.

The oval locket measures 1 x 1.2 inches (18 x 26mm) and 6mm thick.

NOTE: The locket came to me without a chain but included in the price is a stainless steel chain 20 inches or 500mm long. Stainless steel suits the color of vintage silver well and is hypoallergenic. Photograph 3 shows the locket on a life size torso.

Condition: very good - hinge good, closure tight.

Age: late 1880s

Locket - 7.1 gms without the chain

Janne's observations:
I couldn't believe this locket when I found it - love at first sight. Wonderful to hold and deep enough to hold that special memento.
