A very rare snake locket from the Civil War era. The locket features a snake head with wings very much like the early caduceus, the traditional medical symbol. Very ornate, the locket is hallmarked 10K on the inside and is engraved with initials on the back. The locket is suspended from a very elaborate 10K gold chain with flat links alternating with round open links having a center twisted wire. The locket is removable from the chain so that the chain can be worn alone. A stunning early Victorian piece!

The locket measures 1" and with the double bale at the top, the measurement is 1 1\/4". The chain measures 20". Very good condition with no noted flaws. The gold work shows great detail and is in fabulous condition. A well cared for antique that has been preserved through 150 years! Circa 1860
