This sleek vintage Art Deco revival rolled gold locket is an elegant slender oval shape with a flat profile. It is decorated on the front in a striking and sophisticated guilloche design. This eye-catching engraving technique uses engine turning to produce precise, intricate and repetitive patterns, it was a characteristic jewellery motif in the Art Deco era.
The back of the locket is decorated in a quilted design and it opens from the side to reveal 2 good sized stations for photographs along with the original picture rings, liner & hard plastic photo covers.
The locket is in wonderful vintage condition with a beautiful high polished finish and very little sign of any real use or wear. It suspends from a vintage goldtone cable chain that has flat cut links which adds even more sparkle.
Founded in Germany in 1872 Andreas Daub were notable for manufacturing rolled gold jewellery of the highest quality. Rolled gold (gold filled) jewellery is made by mechanically bonding a thick sleeve of solid gold over a metal core. The thickness of gold used is typically 20 microns or more so it is a very durable long-lasting finish that looks and feels like solid gold without the associated high cost.
