Fabulous Fancy Chain & Oval Locket


Fabulous Fancy Chain & Oval Locket. This is a really fabulous example of an antique, sterling silver, locket and chain.  The locket, oval in shape, and measuring approximately 2.5" (including the top bale) x 1.5", has a full hallmark (Birmingham 1881).  The hand engraving on the front of the locket (plain reverse) depicts a water-side sunrise/ sunset scene with a palm tree, and two swallows flying over the water.  The chain itself is wonderful; oblong open-work links alternate with plain round links to create a rather regal looking piece overall.  The chain measures approximately 18" in length, with a discreet bolt fastener at the front of the necklace, from which the locket also hangs.  The locket is hinged to the right and opens, providing space for two photographs, or with a little depth for a lock of hair, or similar, if so desired.  The overall weight of the locket and chain together is approximately 58.7gms.
