Victorian Gold Posie Locket

Victorian Gold Posie Locket

$1,100.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

This rather plain looking rectangle locket opens to reveal the sweetest of sentiments.... Two photographs are separated by a gold divider engraved with a verse (posie) on each side:

"M to N - Present en absence / My love is sure firme to endure" and "N to A - Innumerable are the Stars I see / But in my heart no star like thee"

The locket appears to have been passed down three generations (M to N, N to A), with the final inscription on the outside "NFC C-D 1936". It's crafted in 9ct gold, with a gorgeous antique patina, and likely dates from the 1880s.
