A pretty little oval silver locket that was made in the 1970s. The front is a Plique a jour design after Rennie Mackintosh of stylised roses. Plique a jour is French for “letting in daylight”. It is a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It opens to reveal a compartment in which to put a photograph. A lovely gift
