An antique Victorian locket, so delightfully hand engraved with a design of unfurling ferns symbolising sincerity (both woodland and maidenhair) and a central panel heart-shaped panel topped with a romantic rose for 'love'. The hand engraving is exquisitely fine and skilfully applied with a most wonderful burnished finish and it's sentimental meaning gives such a rare presence to this beautiful antique piece. The two compartments have their original 'frames' to hold two images and the plump oval shape feels quite reassuring in the hand. The whole is in 15ct yellow gold, which was used in Britain between 1854-1932.
Measures 3.5cms x 3cms.
