A beautiful antique Victorian sterling silver 2-sided picture locket suspended from a wonderful old Belcher/rolo chain that is almost 22" (56cm) in length.
The locket is a fairly large size so the adorable photo is nice and visible when worn. The photo shows a very pretty well dressed young girl and it is set in a silver frame behind antique bevelled glass. The frame lifts out should you want to replace the photo and the interior behind it is deep enough if you wanted to insert a little keepsake too.
The other side of the locket is beautifully decorated, it is engraved in a gothic font with the owners initials 'MG' which is surrounded by silver rope trim and heart shaped scrollwork and milgrain beading.
The locket is pillowed so it has an attractive puffy profile and it has a large teardrop shaped bale. A long handmade sterling silver chain completes this beautiful quality antique piece that is ready to wear straight out of the box!.
