Impressive Edwardian Hallmarked Gold Locket On 9ct 18 Inch Necklace


This superb fully hallmarked gold fob locket was assayed* (tested for gold purity*) at Birmingham Assay Office in 1904. The anterior surface of this splendid Edwardian fob is ornamented with wreaths of forget-me-not flowers. Wreaths signify continuous life. Forget-me-not flowers convey deep love, fidelity and respect. Acanthus leaves have been incorporated into the designs on both exterior surfaces. Acanthus leaves symbolise everlasting life.  

In the middle of this stunning fob is a locket compartment which is suitable for two portraits or even a lock of hair. The original clear portrait protector and solid gold frame are present. 

The locket compartment lid is embellished with ivy leaves and forget-me-not flowers which form a continuous wreath around a shield cartouche which also resembles a heart shape. The shield motif conveys the desire to protect. Ivy leaves represent everlasting love, deep friendship and fidelity.

The hinge and catch work perfectly.

The 9 carat gold belcher chain necklace measures 18 inches long.

This wonderful antique is ideal for everyday wear as a pendant or as a watch accessory.

English goldsmiths with maker's marks consisting of the letters J C punctuated with a full stop are numerous and therefore difficult to attribute. However, the distance between the J and the C from the full stop, the location of the full stop and the fact that the two ends of the C almost touch and the lobe on the J bear a strong resemblance to the mark of John Cooke.

An outstanding Edwardian gold fob locket!
