Ornate Victorian Sterling Silver Locket Pendant
During the Grand Period silver took precedence over gold for daytime jewelry. Large oval lockets such as this one were typically worn with chunky sterling chains. Here the central panel is engraved with an intricate foliate motif featuring a rose gold topped flowerhead and three yellow gold (gilt) leaves among a myriad of fern forms.
A chased Gothic-inspired surround frames the floral arrangement as the outer border is accented with star patterns incised into flat rounds and beaded perimeter. Please note the castellated overhang on the bottom outside edge of the locket.
Measurements: 2-1/2 inches (6.4 cm) in length including bale by 1-1/2 inches (3.8 cm) in width. Weight of 13.5 grams (8.7 dwt).
Hallmarks: Full set of English hallmarks for Birmingham, date letter for 1885 and a maker's mark SW.
Condition: Very good; light wear to gold gilding on the leaves and especially the lower one; about five tiny indentations to back.
