An absolutely superb World War I era fully hallmarked 9ct rose gold locket which was crafted by S. Blackensee & Son Ltd. and assayed at Birmingham in 1915. The locket has a splendid matching 9ct rose gold belcher chain necklace measuring 17 inches long. Ornate engravings grace both sides of the locket. The around a central circular cartouche florid acanthus and ivy leaves form a mesmerizingly beautiful composition. The back bears a full set of hallmarks neatly disguised within ivy and acanthus leaves. Lockets are probably the most personal items of jewellery, as they carry the portraits of our loved ones. The engravings seen on antique lockets are deeply symbolic. Acanthus leaves represent immortality, rebirth, longevity and healing. Ivy symbolises everlasting love, deep friendship, fidelity, or wedded bliss. This is such an elegant piece! The interior contains the original hand tinted portraits, both frames and both protective covers for the portraits. The locket opens and closes perfectly. Both the locket and necklace are in excellent condition.
