This is a wonderful antique and very sweet miniature lovers I morning pendant/locket complete with its original travel case which converts into a picture frame displaying the lovers eye beautifully. The locket itself is in wonderful condition for its age although there is some slight damage to the enamel face but does not show any signs of coming loose although has cracked at some point in its history. The watercolour portrait on wafer of the lovers eye is exquisite and shows beautiful detail throughout unfortunately the pictures do it no justice there is so much more depth that cannot be seen in photos. To the back of the Pendant is a locket containing wonderfully plaited hair and above engraved 1896.
The pendant itself I believe is solid sterling silver with a gold plate finish which overtime has begun to slightly fade. May require a clean or Polish. The original box/travel case is in fantastic condition for its age although please keep in mind this item is an antique. See photos for more details.2.5cm x 3.3cm with bail.
