Victorian “Mizpah” Locket

$875

An XL locket made of metal with a high-quality gold coating. The finish is rich, matte and buttery - absolutely passes for solid gold. Mizpah was an obscure biblical thing that became shorthand in the 19th century for, essentially, "I love and miss you". Fabulous Victorian couple inside.
