Victorian Gold Heart Padlock Pendant

Victorian Gold Heart Padlock Pendant

$575.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1890

A charming antique padlock pendant crafted in 9k gold. Quite remarkably the locking mechanism still works: insert the key and turn it clockwise to release the top bar. Someone has chosen to rhodium plate it at some stage in its life (make yellow gold look like white gold), but this can easily be removed while retaining the original patina if so desired. It dates from the late Victorian era, stamped 9ct gold.
