Victorian Large Sterling Silver Horseshoe & Hoof Locket
A fabulous horseshoe locket from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Made of sterling silver and extra large in size, this locket represents a 3-dimensional horse hoof. A textured horseshoe design decorates the front surface, complete with 8 raised nails along the edges. The reverse side of the locket carries the same design, only slightly more detailed, featuring a textured lined surface at the center. The locket opens from the top to reveal a space inside to store a special photograph behind glass. The locket hangs from a simple silver ring at the top and would look wonderful worn on a favorite sterling chain. Perfect for the equestrian enthusiast, this Victorian era piece would make a lovely addition to any collection!
Measurements: The locket hangs 2" long (including the ring at the top). The locket itself measures 1 5/8" tall, 1 1/4" 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 silver setting. The hinged piece opens easily and stays securely closed, and the ring for hanging is secure and in good condition.
