Circa 1880, a lovely large sized sterling silver locket with a skillfully hand engraved bird and butterfly motif on the front cover and a collage of beautifully ornate Aesthetic-style designs on the back. Both bird and butterfly flit through a pond-side summer meadow of wild lilies and tall grasses, symbolizing respectively faithfulness, devotion, good luck and love. 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 locket itself measures approximately 1 1/2" inches north to south and 1 1/4" east to west. The oversized bail, original to the piece, adds 1/2". It opens to reveal a gilded interior with space for two photos, or perhaps a small keepsake, note or lock of hair. There are no photo rings but a lip has been designed around the edge of the interior well on each side that a picture can snap into. Hung from a 25" heavy weight antique sterling silver cable chain with a sturdy contemporary lobster claw clasp. In excellent condition with a gentle antique patina and perhaps a slight ding on the back but the engraving makes it difficult to tell. The interior does show some scratches and wear, but this is not visible with photos in place or when the locket is closed. Opens and shuts firmly. Not marked for metal content but acid tests to sterling silver. ❃ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
