A very nice vintage, Edwardian - 1920's, photo locket, with transitional Art Deco aesthetics.


Many of the design elements are Deco, including the overall shape, certainly the interesting bail, as well as some of the decoration, but note the Art Nouveau scrolls highlighting opposing corners suggesting the locket was made during the Edwardian era of the late teens, or possibly the early 20's.  If you love lockets this example is very attractive and a little out of the ordinary.


It is yellow gold in color,  with a slightly rosy hue.  Probably gold filled, but higher quality, due to additional 12 karat gold shell, as hallmarked.  No other marks found.

The interior image frame is oval in shape and still retains the clear celluloid or lucite (?) photo protector.  To insert photograph you just pull the middle section forward, place the image inside and push frame back into place.


This is a very well made locket pendant, with a substantial hinge, nice quality clasp, solid decorative self bail and very pretty engine turned design inside front and back covers.  It is very nice all original condition, with no dings or dents.  Gold retains good luster, with just extremely minor surface scratches, mainly to back.

The locket has never been monogrammed or otherwise personalized.

A very nice, early locket, somewhat different than the typical Deco jewelry.
