A beautiful antique silver locket with very fine decoration to the front. The decoration has been crafted from silver wire work applied against a hand engraved background. The locket is a fairly good size being approx. 35mm wide x 43mm long. The substantial V-shaped pendant loop adds another 12mm to the length. The back of the locket is plain polished and has the hallmark from the Chester Assay Office for 1881. The chain is new, but in a vintage barleycorn style, and the locket may be purchased without the chain at £199. Please contact us if you wish to buy the locket only.
