Antique victorian gold filled moon & star locket necklace
Antique victorian gold filled moon & star celestial locket necklace
This special antique gold-filled Victorian era puffy rectangular locket features a moon and star on the front and what appears to be a fan on the back. It has an all over texture and the borders have etched leafy patterns. It is on a new gold-filled chain with the original bail and finished with the original gold-filled spring clasp and a brass hexagon loop.
The locket measures just over .75" tall, just shy of .75" across and just over .25" thick. The chain is 18" long.
Condition: This locket has definitely done some living in its 100+ years- it has some denting on either side, a little more on the front (by the closure). Because of the texture and the thick raised design this more adds to its charm and does not detract from its beauty. It stays closed when worn but does not have a very tight seal (the closure is a raised bead of metal instead of a grooved notch).
This locket was found at a flea market while treasure hunting on the East Coast.
