Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1860

A superb antique book locket that opens out to reveal six oval locket compartments. The style, featuring multiple inner compartments, is known as a family locket – although it’s most unusual to find one like this. The covers and inner page of the book are wonderfully decorated with hand-chased detailing, including tiny quatrefoils and a greek key border. It’s held closed by a hinged clasp, and the piece is modelled in 15 karat gold throughout.
