*****This is an antique Victorian locket for repair or for a project. It is missing
the pin stem and the bale at the top. If repaired, this could be worn as a pendant
or a brooch. It looks like there was an earlier repair to the pin, as there is a roll
over safety clasp still in place. *****
Now about the locket. It is a tri color piece. Green, pink and yellow color metal.
I do believe that some of the pieces are gold. The main base of the piece looks to
be rolled gold. I have not tested any of it. You can see wear to what I believe to
be rolled gold. (See Pics) The center piece is hand painted enamel. There are
applied green leaves. Applied flowers. There is a seed pearl set in a pronged
setting at the bottom. There is an empty setting at the top. Most likely held
a pearl as well.
On the back is the locket or hidden compartment. To open, just pry it open
with your fingernail. It contains the original glass and paper. This piece dates
to the 1860s to 1870s.
IMPORTANT about Condition:
-----Missing pin stem
-----Missing one stone or pearl
-----Some discoloration and wear to the metal
