Large Antique Victorian Faux Tortoise Shell Angel Locket - Tintypes

Large Antique Victorian Faux Tortoise Shell Angel Locket - Tintypes

First and most important! This is no perfect angel! This locket has damage 
and I feel this locket SHOULD NOT BE WORN! It is more for the serious 
collector. For restoration. To be studied or displayed.

Even with it's damage, it is a very rare example of Victorian jewelry C1860. 
This is a large faux tortoise shell antique locket. It has a high relief angel or 
cupid on the front. Tintypes inside. Please look at all of the photos in the 
listing to see the condition. Be sure and click on the larger views. I have 
combined some photos so you can see every possible angle of this locket. 

IMPORTANT about Condition:
The back has major loss. The front has cracks and two small circles. The 
original glass and rims are still in place and there are two fabulous Victorian 
tintypes of ladies still inside. One glass and frame will not stay in place 
when opened because of the crack. BUT the locket opens and closes. 
Stays closed when shut.

2 1/8" tall...this includes the bale
1 3/8" wide 
1/2" from the back of the locket to the top of the angel
