A full Birmingham hallmark to 1882 dates this lovely antique Silver locket to the Aesthetic Period when the beauty of Japanese artistic style was much appreciated and simple and naturalistic motifs imitating these found their way into the designs of jewellery created in the West. A charming hand engraved design of a bird on a flowering branch by a flowing river is sweetly traced to the frontispiece of this shield shaped locket.
