Simple, chic and as popular today as it was 113 years ago when it was manufactured in Birmingham in 1908.
Nice and large at 3.5cm in diameter (not including bale) and with its original two panes of bevelled edged glass, which can have a loved ones photo added if desired, or leave it plain.
In some of the photos you can see we have left the two pieces of original material, inside and have removed these for other photos.
With the most interesting ‘ball in socket’ bale enabling this one to swivel, an interesting and rarely seen design allowing you to swivel the locket around to show an admirer the two photos inside with so much ease.
In lovely condition with no chips or scratches to the original glass and hallmarked crisply for ‘WHC’ makers mark, assay in Birmingham and date letter for manufacture in 1903.
Locket is 3.5cm in diameter
With bale 4.5cm
‘WHC’ Makers mark
