Wonderful Rare Example of a Georgian Era Locket Circa 1825.

This Pretty Antique Locket measures approximately 44mms x 25mms including the bail and features a handpainted miniature Vignette of a Sweet Faced Madonna or Virgin Mary holding the crowned Christ Child. The child's feet rest on a world shaped globe decorated with stars and the two figures are suspended in the heavens. The painting is naive but full of artistry the Madonna gazing serenely downwards, the painting with delicate powder blue and pastel tones highlighted with Gold Leaf on the Madonna and Child's Crowns. The central portrait is framed with Gold.

In typical Georgian Style the miniature is surrounded by Dainty Antique Seed Pearls each measuring approximately 2.5mms in diameter. The pearls are beautifully matched and have a lovely silver grey lustre with flashes of rainbow orient. In the early 1800s when this piece was made Pearls were precious and rare as the Cultured Pearl industry that makes pearls readily attainable today was not in existence.

The Pendant has the original glass intact to both the front and reverse locket compartment which snaps shut securely. The locket is made from Vermeil, Silver Gilt, the gilding worn with age on the main body of the silver only to be expected with the age of the piece heading towards two centuries!!

A Wonderful feature to this piece is the Original Bail that is still present in a dainty Bow design typical of the era, again set with tiny pearls, a little bit more wear and tear to the bail but still in lovely condition.

The locket is shown displayed on Gold Filled (plated) chain this will be included with the locket.

*Listing is for Locket & Chain only, any other box, bust, display prop shown for ambiance only. A Quality New Gift Box will be provided.
