A romantic love token locket featuring old photographs, possibly daguerreotypes or ambrotypes, set over a field of mother of pearl. The photographs are portraits of a man and a woman, middle aged and not particularly handsome. There is something especially touching about a token celebrating the love of plain, ordinary people. The images are set under glass on either side of a 14k rosy gold double-sided locket. An unusual and very personal piece. Circa 1870.

Details.....The locket measures 0.96" in diameter, 1.11" with bale. In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique pieces, we consider it part of the charm.
