Circa 1875, a lovely large sized yellow gold-filled locket with Etrsucan style decoration and a fancy decorated bail. The trio of deep carribean-blue glass turquoise sugarloaf-cut cabochons set across the face symbolize the past, present and future of a dedicated affection while the dainty chain link motif framing the edge speaks to the concept of souls or lives eternally connected. It's a wonderful piece brimming with subtle and symbolic meaning. Inside is the original tintype of a sweet little boy dressed in his picture perfect best. While both original photo holders are in place only the side with the photo still has it's glass. Measuring 2" in length from the top of the fancy bail to the bottom of the locket and 1" wide. Strung on a 25" antique yellow gold-filled cable chain. Opens and closes with a solid snap. In excellent antique condition with a gentle antique patina and a few slight marks to the finish speaking to it's dignified age and history, Showing only minimal wear to the glass turquoise. The tintype photo has some surface crazing and has darkened overall but the image is still clear. The locket glass has a very small chip on the edge which is not easily noticed and does not obscure the photo. ❃ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
