Large Victorian Era Quiver of Arrows Locket in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A large, Victorian-era locket, modeled in two colors of 14k gold (yellow and rose), and decorated with a central, hand-pierced, quiver motif. This raised, three-dimensional quiver holds a pair of arrows and a pair of ribbons. It is especially lovely (and interesting) that the arrows point in different directions, one to the north and one to the south, as if some matter of the heart remained in question. The locket face is finished with an intricate crown border. The deep compartment, on the reverse, is covered by a snap-in, bezel-set crystal. The decorative bail will accommodate most chains. This is unique and beautifully made.
Total length is approx 2" (inclding bail); width is approx 1". Quiver motif measures approx 23.6 x 13.5 mm. Depth measures approx 10.6 mm.
