An exceptionally fine antique hallmarked shield shaped keepsake locket suspended from an elegant cable chain necklace. Both sides of the locket are embellished with florid acanthus leaves and forget-me-not flowers. A heart shaped cartouche completes the deeply symbolic imagery. Acanthus leaves symbolise longevity. Forget-me-not flowers represent true love and respect. This piece was assayed* (tested for purity*) at Birmingham in 1910. The hinge and catch hinges work perfectly. Super condition!
