Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

Gorgeous Victorian pique locket dating from the 1870s. It's crafted in pressed tortoiseshell with intricately worked gold and silver inlay - floral and various abstract patterns and designs. The back is home to a glass locket compartment and currently a photograph of someone's grandma (wearing a white bonnet no less). It's easy enough to change out the photograph yourself, the original bevelled edge glass is hinged down one side and there's a length of cord bordering the photo to hold it in place.
