RESERVED Antique Silver Football (Soccer) Locket Pendant

I found myself in Moscow this past July for the World Cup Final. The skies were a bit cloudy but the weather was warm, and I was in good company. It was an exciting summer day as my friend and I settled into our box to watch the match. Of course, we favored France and grumbled about the upset in 2006 when they lost out to penalty kicks. Zin says he regrets nothing, and frankly, I agree. He noticed the good luck charm I kept holding onto throughout the game. 

‘Gold would be better, Victoria.’

‘Some things never change, do they Zin?’

I clutched my locket, Zin grasped his beer, and Kylian Mbappe scored the fourth and final point for France in minute 65. We clinked our pints of Baltika porter and split a knish in celebration. It was a beautiful day.

This antique thematic soccer locket was handcrafted in silver. The front features a motif of a leg kicking a soccer ball. When opened, this rectangular locket reveals two sepia toned Edwardian era photographs. The photo on the left is of a mustached man in his best suit and tie. To the right is the image of a beautiful woman in white with a ring of pearls around her neck and a gorgeous hat upon her brunette locks. I’m assessing that these pictures are from their wedding, as their clothing matches well with popular wedding dresses and suits of the era. The photographs are held in by a frame, without plastic or glass coverings. This locket weighs 7 grams. It measures 26.5 x 18.9 x 10.4 mm. It bears no marks and has been acid tested. This locket was most likely made as a prize for winning a tournament in about 1910, in England.

This darling locket is ideal for a soccer, or as they say across the pond, football fan!
