Gold Victorian Locket & Book Chain AEI
Large Victorian gilded metal locket with AEI monogram superimposed to reference the Victorian sentiment of Amity, Eternity and Infinity. Mourning lockets contained photos of loved ones and sometimes a lock of hair as momentos to wear close to one's heart. Beautifully made, the size is substantial and the classic book chain is pierced overall with tiny crosses. Locket and it's bale measures 2 3/8" long. The bookchain measures 19" long. Includes two Victorian photos, both with original frames and one with it's lens. Excellent condition with minor loss to gold plating. This item is unmarked, circa 1870.
