Unscrew the top of this simple Victorian locket to open the frame and add a photo or two. The flexible frame is fashioned in 9k gold with British hallmarks stamped along its circumference. The lenses rattle a bit within the fittings but they should sit nicely once photographs have been added.
9k gold (marked), glass lenses, new 14k gold chain
Birmingham hallmarks for 1900
1 1/16" length including the bale, 18" chain
1837 — 1901
