A Wonderful Antique Gold Locket Pendant, Victorian Art Nouveau Rare c.1890. The Art Nouveau movement was very short lived, making pieces from this Era particularly scarce. Pieces were made with beautiful workmanship and designs were inspired by nature. The beautiful and rare example is composed of antique yellow gold shell with an antique satin finish that was used during this Era. The piece features a floral/botanical motif on the front with beautiful organic flowing lines. The locket opens and closes nicely and there is a very handsome ring for hanging at the top. Overall the piece measures about 1 7/8 inches long by abut 1 1/8 inches wide. This piece dates to the late 19th century and is in lovely vintage condition.
