Description

DATE: Victorian, 1872

An unusual larger scale MIZPAH locket with a "British Isles" theme. The applied front features a flowing ribbon emblazed with MIZPAH, in rose gold lettering, along with roses of england, thistles of Scotland, and Shamrocks of Ireland. Mizpah, of course, symbolises an agreement between two people with God as their witness - and in this case it applies to the Union of the three nations into one complete state (bearing in mind that when this locket was made Ireland remained part of Great Britain). With English hallmarks for sterling silver and the year 1872.
