A splendid fully hallmarked solid gold antique locket which is ornamented with the most deeply symbolic emblems. The swallow has been seen as a lucky talisman by many generations of travellers and their families. This rare locket depicts a swallow and butterfly flying high over a finely depicted costal scene. Butterflies have symbolised the soul since the Victorian era.
The other side is embellished with a garland of flowers and another graceful swallow.
This piece was assayed* (tested for purity*) at Glasgow Assay Office in 1911.
The locket is suspended from an elegant antique hallmarked gold 19 inch necklace. The interior of the locket is fitted with the original frames, both original backings and both clear portrait protectors. The catches and hinges work perfectly. Super condition throughout!
This George V era antique will accommodate two portraits or photographs.
The images do not do this remarkably beautiful ensemble justice.
We only source hallmarked gold lockets of exceptional quality to save you time and guarantee purity. You will not see rolled gold, gold plated or gold back & front lockets in our stores.
