This fantastic locket is a show stopper! The front has a lovely Egyptian woman or girl in profile, wearing a headdress, from which a few locks of hair have escaped, and hoop earrings. She is nestled within a crescent moon (symbolic of the female principal, intuition, and new beginnings). The back has a monogram, and inside it has both photo rings, but no celluloid. That can easily be fixed with plastic. Unusually large, it measures 1-5/8”, and weighs .77 ounce. It is made of gold over silver, and there is a very faint “sterling” stamp on the inside. It is in excellent condition for its age (circa 1890), with a few barely noticeable shallow dents and a normal patina. The gold is worn thin on the back in the center, and in one place on the front, but that is also barely noticeable. The photos are part of the description; please examine carefully. Shipping, handling, and insurance within the USA included.
