Story

Although this turn of the 20th century locket appears as typical, secrets await and mysteries become unveiled. You open the locket in the traditional manner (similar to a book) to discover that within lie two compartments for photographs. Differences immediately reveal themselves as each section opens by flipping up with a barely visible hinges at the top.

In all, space for four photos is available. The front and back are solid 9k yellow gold with parts of the interior gold-filled or of base metal (typical of many English lockets of the period). Beautiful detailing and bright cut engraving of flora and other pattern work appoint both the front and reverse.
