Gorgeous Antique Victorian Gold Filled Locket with two sides, one is monogrammed, the other features inset paste stones. {Paste is "glass which has been cut into gem-like forms", used extensively from the 1700's to the early 1900's, a much desired material in themselves, not a replacement for diamonds and gem stones, invented by Georges Frederic Strass in 1730.}

This gold filled beauty features a gorgeous hand-etched pattern on one side which features an exquisite Art Nouveau design of a central flower, surrounding detail of leaves, and the added glitter of 12 inset paste stones. Art Nouveau was considered quite "avant garde" at the time, lockets of this era are highly collectible because the era only lasted 20 years, Art Nouveau Jewelry is quite rare to find.

A beautiful hand-engraved monogram can be seen on the obverse side. There is a small double heart slide above on the chain, set with a little pearl. The locket opens easily and closes securely with the help of a small hinge on the left side. There are two little picture windows with celluloid covers, aged somewhat. How wonderful to add two photographs of special children or pets you love, or perhaps a snippet of an old love letter. Locket measures 1~1/8" w x 1~1/4".The chain measures 26".
