Antique Victorian/Early Edwardian 9ct Yellow Gold Convex Glass Photo Locket

Utterly charming and as wearable today as it was over 100 years ago.

Modelled in pocket watch fashion from lush 9ct yellow gold and chased with floral foliate design for the full circumference both front and back, with threaded screw top mechanism to top allowing you to insert (or not) your favourite photo or artwork.

The two original glass panels that sit inside are convex and very very thick.  This convex shape acts as a magnifier, both to the photo inside, and without!  
(see video below)

Constructed in the UK in approximately 1900-1910 this beauty belies her age, almost as good as new with no problems to note.

Approx 4cm x 3cm with bale
10.54 Grams
Glass alone is quite weighty
9ct to cartouche
Very good antique condition.  Original glass is in very good condition with only tiny very superficial marks.
Screw top mechanism works very well and is secure.
Not suitable as a shaker locket.
