Hand Engraved with Ivy leaves symbolising the ties of family and with a gently softened patina, this old 19th century locket has been loved and worn down the years. In the Rococo style dating to around 1860 or so, it's a smooth oval shape which feels good to hold in the hand (as we believe all lockets should) the bright gilding has faded to highlight the carved design beautifully. In the 'Back and Front' style, the hinges, ring and frames are of brass with 9ct Gold side panels. It has had some repair over the years but is remains in good condition with both of the frames to hold your precious photographs. Measures 3cm by 2.3cm.
