Victorian Banded Agate Oval Locket
DATE: Victorian, c.1870
This beautiful antique locket has been carved from single piece of black and white banded agate, with an added glass panel to the reverse and an enamelled gold bail at the top. The skill of the craftsman is evident, as a white halo is present around the front. The back can be removed in order to store a keepsake or memento.
