A fine delicacy, this charming vintage locket has been fashioned with great care and attention; the front embellished with an applied and hand engraved floral arrangement in a basket. A beautiful find and very lovely quality, each of the flowers is cut from Gold and soldered on, the stems engraved and the whole mercury gilded in a matt higher carat Gold (likely 15ct, but we can't test for fear of marking the finish). Such a precious piece, and one to treasure, it likely dates to the 1920's/30's.
Complete with the original frames, the locket measures 2cm in diameter. Find out about the Mercury Gilding process here.
