Antique Victorian 15ct Gold Large Memorial Morning Locket ‘Henrietta Ross’ 1870

Sale price$1,800.00 AUD

Laybys welcome! Contact Us today to secure your dream piece.
We are thrilled to offer not one but two poignant memorial lockets belonging to the same family -  Henrietta Ross (1816-1870), and her brother George Lockhart Ross (1814-1863).

 Naturally we would love to see them stay together, however we will be offering these two lockets separately.

One of, if not the most beautiful and large double paned opening memorial ticket we’ve had the pleasure of offering, this large locket measures a drop of 6cm with the bale (5 x 4cm without), and opening to reveal a space measuring a very deep 1.2cm.

This is no light weight locket, substantially made and weighing 24 grams, with a bale wide enough to accommodate a large gauge chain.

Given her depth inside we feel this locket could become a spectacular ‘shaker’ locket perhaps for a treasured floral arrangement? Or of course beloved photos.
