Large Antique Edwardian 9ct Rose Gold Back & Front Heart Locket
A large antique Edwardian c1910 9ct rose gold back and front heart shaped locket with a hand engraved leaf and flower decoration to both sides and a wonderful repousse border. The front is engraved with the initials “NB”. A "back & front" locket is literally what it says, the back and fronts are made of solid gold but the frame inside is a gilded base metal.
It measures 24mm (15/16ths of an inch) by 21mm (13/16ths of an inch), excluding the suspension bale, and weighs 4 grammes. Marked "9CT BACK & FRONT” on the back of the locket. There are two compartments inside both with rims though one seems a little small. The locket closes quite softly but stays closed. The locket has a yellow gold wash which has worn away on the front and back leaving rose gold showing through so you could wear this with either a rose gold or a yellow gold chain. There is surface wear to some of the engraved detailing but otherwise it is in very good condition.
