Victorian Enamel Memorial Purse Locket

Victorian Enamel Memorial Purse Locket



DATE: Victorian, c.1880 

A cool miniature memorial locket in the shape of a purse. It's crafted in 9k yellow gold,  with a hinged bottom side, and both front and back featuring blue and gold fine enamelling. Each side features a Celtic style engraving and the inside is home to a woven lock of hair. Comes complete with a small chain, to be added to your charm bracelet and I'm guessing this memorial piece was made as a "you're always with me" memento. Dates from the Victorian period, circa 1880. 


 1.5 x 1.7cm




No marks present, tests as 9k gold  


 Very good, very slight wear to the enamel
