An unusual and highly sought after find, this antique 19th century locket is fitted with spaces for three (or maybe four) precious pictures of your beloveds. The ornately decorated locket opens to reveal a swing door compartment with the original glassed sections to each including pretty twisted frames, all is very nicely finished. This piece is made in the 'Back and Front' style with brass hinges, bale and supporting framework, the front and back being elaborately engraved 9ct yellow Gold, and all closes with a satisfying snap. A super gift for a birthday or anniversary, the locket measures 3cm by 2.5cm and is suspended from an 18 inch 9ct Gold trace chain. The last traces of the hand engraved initials 'AB' can be faintly seen on the central shield.
