Lovely little locket from the century before last (that would be the 1800s, more specifically 1870) in 18 carat gold, decorated with elaborate engravings. To one side an eternal knot - a symbol for eternity, loyalty, faith, friendship and love and to its other side a cross. The generous bale gives room for the pendant to be worn on a larger chain or ribbon. Likely once worn as a fob or on a chatelaine.
Measures 3,2 x2 cm including bale. Weight 6,55. Glass cover on one side inside the locket.
Hallmarked for 18 carat, Sweden and 1870. Indistinct makers and town marks.
Wonderful detailed engravings, gleaming 18 carat gold and in excellent antique condition. The locket shuts close very tightly, so you can add a keepsake in the part without a glass cover without worrying that it will fall out.
