Antique Silver & Enamel Slider Locket "I Will Return" Swallow & Forget-me-not Charm
An antique Victorian/Edwardian c1900 Austro-Hungarian silver and enamel slider charm with lovely sentiment "Ich Kehre Wieder" which translates to "I will return" and a forget-me-not to say I won't forget you while I am gone. The top slides to reveal a photo locket underneath with removable glass so the picture can be easily changed. A super, and very rare, piece.
It measures 19mm (6/8ths of an inch) in diameter, excluding the suspension bale, and weighs 3.8 grammes. Marked on the back with the Austro-Hungarian lion head mark for 750 silver which dates from 1886-1922. It is engraved Bremen Bad, possibly a souvenir piece? It slides perfectly and is tight enough not to swing open. There is a tiny piece of enamel missing from an E but otherwise it is in super condition. Such a rare survivor.
