Midwest Art Objects is pleased to present this beautiful solid gold locket crafted in 18K solid gold. Neither gold plated nor filled, and not gold tone or vermeil either. It is an exceptional 18K solid gold locket from an estate in France.

Made in the late nineteenth century, during the late Napoléon III period (or the Victorian one if you are more familiar in British history), this locket has a three dimensional quality about it. A raised centerpiece with 4 demi pearls of very good nacre and high luster is the main feature of the locket. Then the entire pendant is nicely haloed with ornate foliage, volutes and curlicues. The chiseling continues on the bail and on the reverse side of the locket, making it an extraordinary display of superb craftsmanship.

With its glass divider, the locket can hold two photographs. But one may also chose to use one photo and an accompanying memento. Or nothing at all...

The condition of this estate pendant is excellent. No wearing on the pearls, and a clasp which opens and closes effortlessly, yet securely.

This is a very elegant locket, a keepsake bijou to pass on to your next generation.
