Victorian Anchor & Banner Memorial Locket
* * SOLD * *
A wonderful, hand-engraved, Victorian-era memorial locket, modeled in 14k rose gold. This old darling is decorated with a nautical anchor and a banner (which hangs from the anchor's eye). Fascinating, fine, swirling forms populate the field around our anchor, and a delicate dimpled texture fills the negative space behind it. The locket's reverse is inscribed: MMW, died April 25th, 1874. This can hold two photos, and it is complete its original photo rings and glazing. An arrangement of flowers rests beneath one of glazed panels, on a mother of pearl background. Traditionally the anchor is symbolic of hope. This locket hits all the right notes, and it's a great size for daily wear. Opens easily and closes with a satisfying snap.
Measures approx 17.6 x 27.9 mm (excluding bail); total drop is just over 1 1/4"; depth is approx 6 mm. Fits photos trimmed to approx 18.8 x 11.5 mm.
