Antique Pansy & Forget Me Not Locket
Flower symbolism was everywhere during the 19th century—pure romance to receive a coded message in the form of a bouquet or flowers or a small jewel.
This splendid end-of-the-century 14k yellow gold locket unveils unspoken sentiments of adoration with a gorgeous multi-hued lavender enamel pansy flower with a small old mine cut diamond center. Beneath is a wreath of pastel blue enamel “forget-me-nots” punctuated by small gold bead centers and accented with a twisted gold rope border.
The double box locket has a removable glass covered insert and room for two photos, curl of hair or other memento. On the back is a beautifully engraved monogram of the scripted initials “IB” or “JB”.
Date: Circa 1890.
Measurements: 1-9/16 of an inch (4 cm) in diameter. This antique locket has a weight of 20.4 grams (13.1 dwt).
Hallmarks: 14 karat; unknown maker’s mark.
Condition: Excellent; light wear to the reverse and one small indention on the reverse. One glass cover inside has now been replaced with plastic; some small enamel restoration to the pansy petals visible with a loupe only.
Origin: American in origin.
