A gorgeously plump antique oval shaped locket with space for two photographs. Very nicely made and substantial with a chunky round bale, it is fully hand engraved with the most delicate touch in a romantic feathery scrolled adornment, different to each side, the centre motif of a Rose denoting love.
Circa 1830's, it is of a base metal which may be Pinchbeck and is brightly gilded with high carat gold. The locket itself measures 2cm by 1.8cm. You may notice that the magnified photographs show tiny dark patches, these are commensurate with it's age and aren't intrusive to the naked eye.
