Story

A statement of sheer presence, the strength of this Art Nouveau locket is its lyrical use of curvaceous design elements.

Grand in scale as this type always was, this is a slide that is hinged at the top. It pivots and scissors open to reveal two compartments.

One currently holds a mirror and another an empty compartment suitable for a memento or photograph.

Rendered with a confident hand, this is a classic Art Nouveau design with its scrolling waves, asymmetrical patterns, and a suggestion of an underwater ocean scape with seaweed and shell. Petite flowers also dot both the front and back.

French in origin, it dates to circa 1900.
