Large European Victorian Gold Filled Glass Locket
Beautiful large European antique Victorian gold filled locket, circa 1850s, with a beveled glass front and back ready for your mementos! The pocket watch style locket has a gold filled ornate engraved band that has a large loop top for suspending from a chain or ribbon. The band wrapped glass on the front and back is beveled on the edges and is convex which acts like a magnifier. Measuring 2 1/3 inches from the hinge to the bottom, the glass portion measures roughly 1 5/8 inches. I do not know how to open the locket but a jeweler could easily add photos or sentimental items for you by removing the glass. Well executed and a wonderful find, this piece is a great memento!
