Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

*On Hold* A beautiful antique heart padlock with locket compartment to the reverse. It was made in the late 19th century, set on the front with a turquoise trefoil motif and artfully decorated with engraved foliate embellishment. It's crafted in 15 karat gold and, although initially intended to be used as a clasp, we think it makes a great pendant. Charmingly, the three turquoise cabochons each display a different colour hue - I'm not sure whether this is by original design or by luck, the years having discoloured the stones at different rates.
