VICTORIAN STERLING ORNATE BOOKCHAIN & LOCKET NECKLACE

1860-1880 19th Century Sterling Locket & Bookchain Necklace

VICTORIAN STERLING ORNATE BOOKCHAIN & LOCKET NECKLACE

There is nothing quite like a19th Century locket that brings out the romanticism in everyone. This exceptional sterling ornate locket is one of the finest ones I have seen particularly as is suspends from an equally ornate book chain necklace.

The locket has tremendous elegance and grandeur. The hand - etched design depicts a bird in flight with flowers and a pattern on the top and bottom. The center is framed in Etruscan style swags and wire.

The book chain necklace is remarkable. Each link is die-stamped and pierced with a star that creates an elaborate effeminate look; one that only appears from mid-Victorian period artisans. The outer chain consists of alternating loops.

The locket opens and shuts with a snap and contains two compartments, one that has the original glass and one that does not, yet has material covering it. The locket and bail is 2 1/4 tall, 1 3/8 wide and over 3/8 deep.

The bookchain is 16 1/4 long, the locket suspends another 2 and weighs 58.2 grams so it is almost two ounces. It is in excellent vintage condition and guaranteed to be of the period.
