A magnificent and richly embellished WWI era solid gold locket which is suspended from a fully hallmarked 9 carat gold necklace. The fully hallmarked locket was assayed* (tested for gold purity*) at Birmingham Assay Office in 1918. Crafted by Henry Matthews this piece is ornamented with paisley print style engravings. The shield cartouche symbolises the desire of the donor to protect the wearer of this locket. The shield is engraved with initials which are open for interpretation. They could appear to be the following combinations T W, F W or J W. The catches and hinges work perfectly.
This antique will also be shipped with a 9 carat gold 18 inch belcher chain necklace as well as the 9 carat gold necklace listed here.
This locket is suitable for two photos.
Super condition throughout!
This locket is fitted with black moire linings on to which photographs can be easily attached.
