Circa 1960 and hailing from Germany this very pretty vintage sterling silver locket is decorated in a beautiful old fashioned rose pattern.
The locket is an oval shape, with the front floral embossed and the back having a satin finish. Ready to wear right out of the box and in tip top condition it opens to reveal 2 photo stations with fabric liners and hard plastic covers, there are lips around the inside edges so photos are tucked underneath to hold them in place.
The locket opens from the side and closes with a satisfying snap, it has a little peg at the side keeping it tightly locked shut to protect the memories that you will put inside and it suspends from a classic sterling silver belcher chain.
