Antique Edwardian Locket Necklace Engraved R.E.E.
A beautiful locket with many unusual features. It opens on the back, behind the lovely Art Nouveau styled hinged bail. The shape is also unusual with round inset corners, an elongated oval inner frame, and a detailed engraved cover. There is an oval cartouche for initials on the cover which is blank. The initials R.E.E. are hand engraved on the back, done by hand, in an elegant and elaborate font.
Inside the locket, there are two frames, one complete with a clear celluloid cover, the other has no cover but both have frames. The celluloid has yellowed with time.
Completing the necklace is the most beautiful tight link curb chain – it looks like solid gold and drapes like it too. The chain is 18″ long. The total approximate weight is 9 grams.
The locket is marked on the rim of one of the inner frames. Unfortunately, it is not legible.
The chain is marked on the clasp.
