Here is one of our favorite lockets! The front has a beautiful Egyptian woman or girl – or perhaps goddess - 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. There is a beautifully engraved but illegible monogram on the back, and the gold is worn a little thin on the back in the center, and in one place on the front, but that is also scarcely noticeable. The photos are part of the description; please examine carefully. We do lay-away. Shipping, handling, and insurance within the USA included.
