Georgian Gold & Turquoise Padlock Necklace
Sold!

A Georgian padlock clasp affixed to a newer (likely Victorian) chain. The padlock is set with turquoise and detailed emblems of the United Kingdom: the rose, thistle and clover which represent England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Wales is represented by the leek or sometimes daffodil and for whatever reason is not included in this patriotic melange.
