This is a glorious antique Victorian 14K Etruscan-Revival oval locket. The Etruscan design of this Victorian period piece strives to reclaim the glory of the ancient Italians. It is very old (over 100 years old) and remains in a fabulous condition.

The locket has a unique oval/egg shaped construction highlighted by intricate metal work on the front with its original scallop-shaped hanging bale. Opening from the side, it reveals one compartment for photos by design. It still retains its original bezel ring, glass cover (an indication of a locket made prior to the turn of the twentieth century) and an old tintype photo of a victorian woman inside, truly indicating the age and history this piece has gone through. So precious and mysterious!
