So rare to find, this Antique Sterling Silver Keepsake Brooch with Locket has beautiful designs of winged serpents on the pin, Griffins, known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions. The Victorian pin has a piano hinge and clasp in gold, this exceptional piece dates to the 1800's.
Hanging from a heavy silver chain, the locket has ornate engraved designs on the front, it has the original silver frames and glass, both photo compartments lined with green velvet. Such a fabulous addition to your jewelry collection, one of the most unusual brooches I have found in many, many years. The back has some wear and a few dents in the silver as shown. A storied piece, no doubt worn over a lady's heart for decades. Make this yours, and wear it with pride, or simply display on your luxury antique French mannequin.
