Antique Victorian Oval Mourning Locket WITH Taille D’Epargne Enamel
This rare antique locket is exquisitely hand engraved. The Taille D’Epargne black enamel enhances the delicate pattern on both sides. Each cover has a unique design.
This locket holds the original baby photo. It has two frames for two photos. Both have the original inner frames and the glass covers.
It is very easy to replace the original photo if desired. However, collectors appreciate it being included in its undisturbed form. If you would like us to remove it for you, please ask.
The measurements are almost 1 3/4″ tall, including the rings on top, by 7/8″ at the widest point and 7/16″ deep.
It is in remarkable condition for its age, dating from the 1880s.
The locket is not marked and was carefully tested to confirm its gold filled content. It weighs approximately 10.7 grams.
