Story

An unparalleled treat! You could not ask for more in an antique keepsake that has survived 157 years to come to us so intact and with provenance.

Where to begin? Let’s start with three different inscriptions. One on the inside of the clock face, one at the base, and one tucked away on the reverse of the braided hair compartment.

Unusually, due to this, we know that this was a gift from a wife to a husband, Leopold Morath and we know the date, 1864. The interior reads, "Presented to Leopold Morath, by his affectionate Wife. 15 Nov r 1864.

The base is hand engraved with his name again. On the back behind the plaited hair, the last locket compartment, reads, "In Memory Of, Sophia Morath, Who Died 27 Oct. 1868 Aged 29." This section of the locket does not swing out fully so it hard to see.

Ornate guilloche patterns embellish the back along with hand engraved scrolls, and flowers as well as on each interior locket back. The entire pendant is 14k yellow gold.

One must wonder whether Sophia passed at about 3 minutes after 5, for it is an unusual hour to note on the face of the clock.

The original photographs are left inside. Rare and with provenance.
