Large Antique Victorian c1890's 9ct Gold Opening Suitcase Locket Charm
A large antique Victorian c1890's 9ct gold charm of a suitcase, with leather strap detailing, that opens but has nothing inside. A fabulous piece that is a little battered but rather lovely.
It measures 25mm (1 inch) by 13mm (1/2 an inch) and 9mm (3/8ths of an inch) deep. The overall weight is 3.3 grammes. It is unmarked but tests as 9ct gold. This has obviously been much loved in the past. There is surface wear all round but one of the leather straps, the top two edges under the suspension bale and the bale itself all have significant wear. The hinge is good and the piece closes securely. There is a large space inside which could be used for all sorts of things, lock of hair, love letter etc. A lovely rare piece.
