Exquisitely and skilfully carved with Roses and Acanthus leaves; the sentiment of love and immortality so fitting for such a personal piece of jewellery. Dating to the very early 19th century, this is a superior example and an appealing collector's piece exhibiting all the familiar beauty of jewels from the period.
Inspired by tenderest feelings with compartments to hold two precious photographs or mementos which keep loved ones close to the heart, the locket measures just over an inch in diameter and hangs from an adorable and beautifully hand carved matching bale which would fit quite a chunky chain or ribbon. Original glass and frames, in wonderful condition and of 18ct gilded base metal.
