Antique French Silver Slide Locket Mirror Wheat

She’s standing on the platform, waiting for her train. The relentless rain finally stops after a morning of storms, so she steps forward into the rays of sunlight gladly bursting through the clouds. Her long coat is beginning to become too warm, so she unbuttons it, letting cool air rush in. Around her neck is a locket that she grabs, sliding it open, gazing at a sepia photograph for only a moment before flipping the mirror side to her face. She reapplies her lipstick and tucks a few stray hairs back into place. She closes her eyes, feeling the sun’s warmth, listening for the faraway train, picturing the wheat fields of her childhood farm blowing in the morning breeze.

This antique French silver slide locket was handcrafted around 1900. It’s an elegant piece featuring a repousse wheat sheaf motif on both the front and back. It slides open to reveal a frame lined in white fabric across from a beveled mirror. This is a rectangular shaped locket that measures a large 73 x 41 mm and weighs 37.3 grams. It bears the French boar head mark, indicating it was marked by the Paris Assay Office for 800 silver or finer. It also bears a maker’s mark.

Versatility is key to fashion, at least, it should be. This two-in-one locket is every fashionista’s dream!
