A charming vintage 1950s English sterling silver heart locket engraved with fern flourishes surrounded by a zig zag border on the front with the back silky smooth.
There's a lovely black and white photo inside of a 1950's baby boy which can be replaced with your own should you wish and the locket is deep enough for other tiny keepsakes too..
The locket is pillowed (puffy) and opens from the side to reveal a station for the photo along with the original picture ring and hard plastic cover. Lovely quality with the silver a sturdy gauge, not thin and tinny the locket suspends from a 16" (41cm) sterling silver rolo/belcher chain.
The locket is in excellent vintage condition with only light surface wear (any dark/discoloured areas are purely reflections). The hinge is in perfect order and the locket closes tightly with a snap. An absolute classic beauty.
