French Silver Repousse Compact Slide Locket Pendant Antique

$ 1,100.00

Mystery and beauty. The special charm of this French Silver Repousse Locket is that inside its exquisite, gleaming exterior of meandering silver vines (almost liquid in movement) there lies a secret; something only you know, something you treasure and keep close to your heart. Is it a picture of a child, a friend, or someone who still makes your heart flutter? Is it a lock of hair? Or perhaps a square of lace, spritzed with your favorite perfume!

This gorgeous French locket is an excellent example of repousse work, the twining foliage hand-hammered from the reverse side. The beautiful front design is repeated on the back, and the pleasing oval shape fits nicely in the palm of your hand. Handmade in France around 1890, it is marked with the French Boar’s Head. This lovely pendant locket measures 78 mm from top to bottom, 46.7 mm wide, and 17.5 mm in depth, it weighs 33.8 grams. Inside, a frame lined in red velvet is ready to hold your keepsake; on the other side of the frame is a hidden mirror, just right for a quick check…yes, you look wonderful!

Whether you wear it hanging from a black velvet ribbon or on a long guard chain, this locket will attract endless glances your way. Is it because of the mystery of what's inside, or simply the beauty of its shine and splendid detail? Either way, enjoy the attention!
