A late Victorian era 9ct yellow gold locket in an unusual shield shape, with a delicate and beautifully hand engraved border of Fern like embellishment which traces the edges. With space for two photographs, it is nicely sturdy and it closes nicely, measuring 3cm by 2.5cm across.
This piece has marks across the body of the locket which are noticeable and can be seen in the photographs (it has been priced with this in mind). The marks lie across the open cartouches which could be hand engraved with a personal emblem or initials and in doing so it may be possible to disguise them.
