Rare Early Victorian Padlock Style Locket


Dating to the 1830's or thereabouts, this piece is a total sweetheart, and we just love the sentimental feeling it expresses. In a golden base metal, you can imagine the care which went into making this charming and meaningful old jewel. 

On a frame of gilded brass, to one side a shield framed by Roses (a symbol of love) and scrollery, and t'other a hand engraved padlock inside a border of Ivy leaves. Nicely chunky, this would look just wonderful on a substantial chain. It measures 2cm across. Remarkably it retains both of the original frames, along with one olden faded image. Please note, the Padlock doesn’t open!
