A hidden pond, lush with cattails and water lilies, radiates a tender vitality. The front of this enchanting Victorian locket is embellished with a wonderfully detailed natural scene modeled in yellow, rose, green, and lavender gold. Aesthetic Movement details frame the verdant scene. The locket opens from the back; a hinged door of rose gold opens to reveal a compartment ideal for a lock of hair, a flower, a baby tooth...any small memento you like. The locket hangs from a gold rope chain that clasps at the front with a spring ring. Delightfully wrought in many hues of 12k and 14k gold. Circa 1890.
Details.....The chain is 16" long. The locket measures 1.68" by 1.30" and 0.47" thick. In Very Good Antique Condition.
