Antique French Art Nouveau Pea Flower Slide Locket

Peter Jackson stole it as the motif of the Elven folk, Lothlorián is steeped in it. Who can blame him? The sublimely curved arches and whiplashes of the Art Nouveau period speak to the soul in some sort of ageless way, a light and lofty quality that whispers of tranquility. The airy arch on this French beauty is overgrown by sweet pea flowers so three dimensional, you can almost smell them.

This gorgeous Art Nouveau silver slide locket was handcrafted around 1890 in France. It features a repousse flower motif on both sides with two beveled mirrors hidden inside. It’s an oval shape and weighs 35.9 grams with an overall measurement of 72 x 40.6 mm. This beautiful locket is hallmarked with the French word, “DEPOSE”, a diamond cartouche, and other French hallmarks. It has been acid tested. 

Slide lockets with mirrors are a hard thing to beat, really. This one would look lovely around your neck.
