Poetic French Art Nouveau Slide Locket
This marvelous antique 18k yellow gold locket strays from the mainstream path. Referred to as a slide locket, a mechanism at the apex enables the top to pivot and scissor open to enable the top of the piece to slide across the bottom to open. The front displays an amazing repoussé scene of ducks gliding on the surface of a pond. A canopy of overhanging calla lilies offers respite from the blazing sun. Both the ducks and the lilies are appointed with forty-three (43) rose cut diamonds. The reverse is hand engraved with the script initials “TCG” or “FCG”.
Date: Circa 1900.
Measurements: 2-7/16 inches (5.6 cm) in length including bale by 1-5/8 inch (4.1 cm) in width. Weight of 17.9 grams (11.5 dwt).
Hallmarks: Two unidentified European hallmarks, possibly French.
