Stunning antique Art Nouveau locket pendant featuring the likeness of St Cecilia, patroness of music and musicians. The image is created by using the Repousse technique, the metal is hand shaped from the back with fine tools. It requires excellent skills and full mastery of the craft.
This beautiful antique locket is made of solid 14k yellow gold, is 1″ in diameter not including the links on the top, and weighs approximately 5.7 grams. It is unmarked and was carefully tested.
Condition is very good with minor wear and small indentations to the back. This is consistent with age. Estimated to date from the 1890s.
