Antique French Silver Daisy Locket

She picked a flower, a yellow daisy, the happy, hopeful kind of flower with rows petals and a soft button center. She sat on a blanket beneath the sun in a field of clover and wildflowers. She hummed to herself as the wind took her hair and danced with it around her head. She whispered in rhythm, “Il m’aime un peu, beaucoup, passionnement, a la folie, pas du tout,” pulling each petal free, one at a time, until all but one had been plucked. Did he love her, or love her not? The answer was for her to know, a secret kept between the flower and herself, but she did decide that his picture could stay hidden away in her locket, at least for now.

This antique French silver daisy locket was handcrafted around 1890. A repousse daisy bouquet motif decorates both the front and back while the inside bears two frames awaiting photographs. It weighs 3.7 grams and measures 35 x 25.3 mm. It bears the French boar head mark, indicating it was stamped by the Paris Assay Office and is at least 800 silver.

For secrets, romances, and memories, lockets are the key. The fact that look great strung around a neck is just a plus.
