Victorian Sterling Silver Textured Puffy Heart Locket
A romantic and unique heart locket from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This 3-dimensional piece is crafted in sterling silver and forms the shape of a lovely "puffy" heart. An incredible textured finish decorates the entire surface of the piece, closely resembling a leopard-like print pattern. A rich darkened patina compliments the polished surface finish, creating a gorgeous two-tone appeal. The locket is hinged on the side and opens to reveal two spaces with fabric inserts, perfect for storing photographs or keepsake items. The piece hangs from a simple round bail at the top, and would look fantastic paired with a favorite chain or as part of a charm necklace. A sweet and unique piece, it would look lovely worn everyday and would make a perfect gift for someone special!
Measurements: The locket hangs approximately 1 1/4" long (including the bail at the top), and measures about 7/8" wide and 3/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the locket is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. Both the hinged locket and bail are secure and in good working order.
