Description

DATE: Edwardian, 1902

This antique oval locket has more to it than initially meets the eye... Known as a family locket, it has space inside for four photographs, instead of the usual one or two. Hinged at the bottom, it opens up to reveal the glass compartments, which themselves are also hinged to fold out. On the front is the engraving "22nd February 1902" and to the back "Nurse - From Christie, Faith, Philip" - presumable a gift from three grown up children to their nurse? Who knows...
