A highly detailed, book-shaped locket on a vintage style, antiqued-brass coloured chain.
The high quality locket is plated with brass, and has been antiqued (artificially aged) to show up the decoration on all sides. The back of the locket has a simple pattern of many fine, vertical lines. It opens and closes beautifully – it won't slip open by itself, but neither will you ruin your fingernails trying to open it! It sits flat when fully opened, and inside it are two oval spaces for two images or photographs, measuring 15mm by 9.5mm. You could also add a tiny piece of fabric or ribbon, a lock of hair, a note, or some other small thing. I recommend adhering your treasure to the inside of the locket, or stuffing it in securely, to be certain that it won't come loose and work its way out.
The Victorians loved lockets, and used to keep all kinds of things in them. They were worn inside or outside the clothing, by both men and women, including soldiers in battle, so that they could keep their loved ones close all the time.
The chain is iron based and antiqued-brass in colour, with textured, oval links. The necklace fastens with an antiqued-brass coloured lobster-claw clasp, which clips into a small, twisted ring.
Please note that while some of the photographs show three different lockets, this listing is for the brass-plated one only. If you are interested in a copper plated or silver plated locket, just contact me.
