Description

This is such a sweet, sentimental piece history - Victorian heirloom mourning locket

{1880}

Double faced locket featuring a beautiful and symbolic enameled design on both back and front. There is an enameled belt and a sprig of ivy tucked in. In Victorian symbolism the belt or garter symbolize eternal love, fidelity and loyalty. The ivy symbolizes everlasting love, marriage and eternal faithfulness.

Inside is a stunning hand painted memorial portrait of the love that was lost....a beautiful woman, held safe for well over a century under bevelled glass.

Measures 1 3/8" high and 1" in diameter.

Gilt metal with black enamel. Light wear, but very little. Consistent with age and reverent love.
