This silver locket was made circa 1880 when all things Japanese were in fashion. It was called the Aesthetic period. Furniture, wall hangings oil paintings and jewellery reflected the passion for the Oriental style. Here two love birds are engraved flitting about amongst bamboo shoots with the blazing sun overhead. The two birds may have represented the two photographs of a rather stern looking couple inside but you can remove them if you wish!
