This Man in the Moon Art Nouveau Locket is one of those pieces that just stops you in your tracks. On one side of the front is the moon in crescent form with strikingly handsome features, his hair becomes a hanging night sky and his beard becomes ocean waves, the vision is completed with a .25ct old mine cut diamond set as a star. The entirety of this visual embodies Art Nouveau and the late 19th century fascination with astronomy. This locket was made using the technique of repoussé where the design is created from the back of the jewel to give depth and fine detail when viewed from the front. The back of this locket has a few scratches and small dents but is free from initials. The locket is signed inside for 14k and there is also a makers mark. The chain is new recycled 14k gold. The locket dates c1890.

Details.....The locket measures 1.23" across. The chain is a cable chain newly made from recycled gold and can be worn at 16" or 18" lengths for extra versatility. In Very Good Antique Condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels; we consider it part of the charm.
