Large Victorian Photo Locket Pendant, Decorated Silver. (10894) - For Sale
Large Victorian Photo Locket Pendant, Decorated Silver. (10894)
Sterling silver large Victorian photo locket pendant, with unusual raised embossed decoration and bright cut engravings of a flower and foliage. The embossing has the appearance of 19th century steelwork (cut to look like diamonds, but made in metal) - however, the example here is made in the silver. Hallmarks for Birmingham 1884 (the registration mark is an applied diamond and is placed over the year mark, so hard to read), but in any case the registration mark is for 1881. Maker's mark is for David & Lional Spiers who were registered from 1882 to 1894. Measures 4.5 cm by 3.75 cm not including the bale (1.3/4 inches by 1.1/2 inches). A few minor little indentations to the rear, patina of age but in very good condition for an item approximately 125 years old.
