Story

Although typical with its oval shape and quite august in both size and weight, this double box or picture locket circa 1880 has an unusual scalloped perimeter embellished with silver orbs in the manner of archaeological jewelry of the period.

Beautiful applied twisted wire work creates arched rows of designs including tulip flowerheads, concentric half-circles and small rosettes on the north and south sections of the piece. In addition, a smooth arch of rose gold and an engraved shell motif accents the wire work. Remarkable engraved images of birds in flight chasing several windblown leaves appoint the front. The interior reveals the two compartments replete with rims to embrace your cherished photographic memories.
