Georgian "Gage De Mon Amitié" Rock Crystal Heart Locket
DATE: Georgian, c.1740
This magnificent early Georgian rock crystal heart locket, with white enamelling to the floral top and sides. Already a beautiful thing, this piece has French lettering around the outer edge: "Gage De Mon Amitié", which translates literally a "A Token of My Friendship" (although this is most definitely a love token...). Very sweet, with a lovely romantic message, the locket opens to accept a keepsake or memento.
