Late Victorian Sterling Silver Enamel & Pearl Starburst Locket
A fantastic enameled locket from the Late Victorian (ca1900) era! This lovely piece, which is oval in shape, has a rich black enamel face and back. On the front of the piece is a starburst design which is accented with delicate, lustrous pearls. The locket hangs from a complimentary enameled bail which is perfect for hanging from a simple sterling chain. The inside is stamped "CB" on both sides. It's a wonderful piece and would make a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: The locket hangs approximately 2" long, is a little less than 1 1/4" at the widest point and 3/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the locket is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the sterling locket and all of the pearls are intact. There is some normal surface wear to the enameled surface which isn't unusual for an enameled piece from this era. The piece opens easily and stays securely closed.
