Antique Solid Gold Locket 1912 Henry Matthews 5.2 Grams With 18 Inch Necklace


An unusual and ornate fully hallmarked antique gold locket which has fluted edges and deeply romantic symbolism. This splendid pendant is embellished with a shield cartouche framed by acanthus leaves on one side. Acanthus leaves also feature on the other side as well as forget-me-nots. The shield cartouche represents the desire of the donor to protect the recipient. Acanthus leaves symbolise immortality. The locket is in excellent condition. The hallmarks are unworn and easy to read. H M into two square is the mark of Henry Matthews.

This antique keepsake locket was assayed* (tested for gold purity*) at Birmingham Assay Office in 1912.

The original green fabric backings and frames are present and so portraits or locks of hair can be attached easily.

We have included an ornate 18 inch necklace so that this locket can be worn immediately.

Our antique gold lockets are hallmarked gold. You will not see gold plated (gold front & back) lockets or rolled gold lockets in our stores.

We understand how time consuming it can be to source a gold locket because so many of the lockets for sale are rolled gold or gold plated.

To save you time we only source fully hallmarked gold lockets aged over 100 years.

You will not see rolled gold, gold plated or gold back & front lockets in our stores.

We include images of the hallmarks and so you can be certain of the antiquity and purity of the antique gold lockets in our store.
