In the Aesthetic style which influenced fashion and design in the 1880's, this large Silver gilt locket takes the art of Japan as it's inspiration. Molded with geometric shapes and engraved with a sweet swallow to the frontispiece, the whole is in Silver gently gilded to create a soft bloom of Gold (this can be brightened by re-gilding if required). Made by Constantine and Floyd of Regent Place in Birmingham, the full hallmark to the reverse dates this locket to 1880 when it was assayed in Birmingham. Please check the images as this piece has a few age related dinks to the back section and and a single mark to the front centre panel. Measures 4cm by 3.3cm and closes with a secure click.
