There's nothing like the rich color of high karat gold. A lovely late-19th century Victorian Chinese export locket crafted in 900 gold (21.6k) featuring an applied bird motif on the front cover: an attentive mama at home in a blossoming cherry tree, tending her nest of eggs, represented by three creamy white pearls. It's a wonderful piece brimming with subtle and symbolic meaning, making it a perfect choice for a bridal, anniversary or love token gift; the nesting bird traditionally symbolizes faithfulness, devotion, enduring love, and hope, while the cherry blossoms around her reference female beauty, as well as feminine sexuality, love and passion. The locket itself measures approximately 1 1/2" inches north to south not including the large bail, and 1 1/4" east to west. It opens to reveal a space for two photos, and retains the original photo frame on one side. Hung from a fine vintage 26" gold-filled rolo chain, with the same rich gold color. In excellent condition with a gentle antique patina and a couple of very subtle marks but no obvious dings, scratches or dents. Marked inside the bail for 900 gold with Chinese export hallmarks for Cumwo, a manufacturing jeweler in Hong Kong, 2nd half of the 19th century. ❃ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
