Lovely Victorian oval locket with original inside frames and thin plastic inserts for covering treasured photos. The design is in multiple layers of antique brass over a base oval. The base is overlaid with a slightly smaller oval with grooved, dentil molding type edges and metal beading on the rim. At the center is a highly raised deco-style, three-part geometric design surrounded by vine like-scalloped embossed detail.
The back is a very traditional, flat locket design with a center oval desigin surrounded by very thinly grooved stripes and four flowers with leaves along the edges. The locket is topped with a lovely scroll bale with Egyptian Revival influence. Opens on the right with a hinge on the left. Not the original chain. Spring clasp. Unmarked.
Locket is 1.5" x 2". Chain is 29".
