Victorian Engraved Gold Locket 1905

He was gone for a long time, maybe a year, maybe two. It was a sea Captain’s life and he wore the honor proudly. Sometimes though, when the clouds were heavy and the sky was dark, he’d think of home and his stomach would knot ever so slightly. He’d remember how his wife smelled of freshly baked cakes, and that grin on her face when he told a bad joke. He remembered his daughter, running through the backdoor with muddy shoes from playing near the pond. So, in his locket he kept the smallest of portraits of them, both smiling, both happy, both waiting for him to come home. 

This handsome antique shield shaped gold locket was handcrafted in Birmingham, England, in 1905. Detailed engravings on the front feature a shield surrounded by swirling vines and steady lines. The back bears a motif of similar vines as well as the hallmarks. This piece is fully marked with the gold purity numbers, ‘925’, and ‘.375’, as well as an anchor mark for Birmingham, and the letter code ‘f’ for the year 1905. The maker’s mark reads, ‘L.W&O’. Inside this regal locket are two frames, shield shaped and ready to hold your favorite photographs. The overall measurements are 31.5 x 18.2 x 5.6 mm. It weighs 5.0 grams. 

I can’t get over how perfect this locket is. There’s something about it that’s so intriguing. Maybe it’s the gold or the details. Maybe it’s the style or the shine. Either way, this shield locket pendant should be yours.
