247 Admirers

An attractive oval shaped locket with repousse and engraved detail on the front with a foil backed amethyst paste. It was made circa 1860 and was really the costume jewellery of the time as it imitated an 18ct gold and amethyst locket. It is in fact 18ct gold that has been gilded on to a metal base. It is sometimes called Pinchbeck but that is an earlier term. It opens to reveal one glazed compartment for a photograph. It looks lovely worn on a medium length chain.
