An unusual and elaborate Indian Raj silver locket and chain. Locket is tested silver with a design in very high relief of a god and stylized bird in intricate detail. Locket is fairly light in weight and is suspended on an interesting, and quite heavy, tested silver chain. The flat curved links have stylized snakes in the middle with square shaped panels on each side. The flat links are joined together with round links, and the necklace closes by a large spring ring which fits into the bale of the locket. Choker style. Very impressive piece.
Condition: Very good. A very tiny ding on the back of the locket, but this does not detract from the appearance. . No glass in locket.
Size: Chain- 17 inches. Locket- 2 1/4 X 1 3/4 inches.
