Jugendstil German Silver Slide Locket by Martin Mayer

The firm of Martin Mayer was established in 1888 in Pforzeim, Germany. It was one of a handful of Jugendstil companies to make a name for themselves in the area. They made silver jewelry for the German and French markets. This piece was one I obviously couldn’t pass up as slide lockets are one of those staple pieces in every woman’s wardrobe. They’re miniature treasure chests that get to be hung around the neck, and stored near the heart.

This Martin Mayer silver slide locket was handcrafted in Germany around 1900 during the Jugendstil movement. The front and back both feature an abstract circle motif. When opened, this locket reveals two frames with glass covers lined in white fabric. This oval pendant measures 63 x 36 mm, and it weighs 27.9 grams. It bears the silver fineness mark, “800”, a crown mark, and the pinwheel and star mark of Martin Mayer.

Make this wonderful silver locket your own with a precious photograph or two and a black chord to wrap it around your neck.
