Large Antique Victorian Aesthetic Period Silver Locket Circa 1898

Large Victorian (1837-1901) silver locket crafted during the Aesthetic movement that epitomises quality hand made  craftsmanship.

The front is decorated with hand chased floral / fern motifs with the border a halo of  classic impressed ‘star’  and ’bead’ motifs.
This locket has an abundance of detail, with an equally ornate and wide bale which would be large enough for a variety of chains. 
Hinges in perfect order and snaps closed very satisfactorily.

Stamped simply for 925 to the inside of rear panel, leaves a tiny ‘impression’ to the back which is not a dent !
Quite large at 5.8cm with bale x 3.7cm

Inner rims and perplex/glass are missing, however these large deep oval panels lend themselves to easily holding a well sized photo quite safely without.

5.8cm x 3.7cm (With bale)
Approx 9mm deep
30.5 Grams
Very good overall
Indent from 925 stamp rear panel
Slight patina in-between star motifs and internal rims

Please note, chain and box are for display
