Small Antique 14K Gold Victorian Locket

Very small and dainty antique 14K gold Victorian locket. Unmarked, but acid tested by jeweler. It has a beautiful repousse scroll designed frame and bale. The front and back have an engine turned design. One side has a blank cartouche for initials. (It opens on this side. Just pry open with your fingernail.) It appears that it once had an additional cover on the inside. There is still a hinge there. This little locket dates to around 1840 to 1850.

3/4" in diameter
1 1/2" in length (which includes the loop)

7.1 grams

---Some tiny dings in the cartouche area.
