Stunning Art Nouveau Silver Slide Locket Double Sided

People often ask me where I shop; where I find my pieces. So, here’s a little peek; I shop at markets where I pick one or two or 10 items that I might want to buy from someones showcase, but I also meet with dealers at their homes or offices or even my flat. When shopping this way, I first pull out all the things that I think I might possibly want to buy. This collection is usually piled into a big bowl of some sort and then at the end I get prices and decided if I can or I can’t. I always get prices on the things I want the most first, this might give me away, but I want to be sure to have the most flexibility at the beginning of my buying, so that I make sure to get my most favorite pieces first. Of the four pages of invoices (each holds 20 items) I was handed at the end of this particular meeting, this locket was first on the list.

The stunning lines of this beautiful Art Nouveau locket portend the transition to Art Deco that’s to come, but while staying true to the Nouveau form. This completely hand crafted locket is the same front and back, and slides open to reveal 2 frames for photographs. This French beauty is on the large and ‘sure-to-be-noticed’ side of things and measures 55.7 mm north to south and 42.9 mm across, it’s 11.3 mm deep. The locket is marked with ‘800’ for the silver content and ‘PK’ as a makers mark, it weighs 13.2 grams.

Hand crafted around 1910, this super stylish locket is as relevant and remarkable today as when it was made over 100 years ago.
