Victorian Silver locket - SOLD
Description: Wonderfully enamelled sterling silver victorian locket. This is a prime example of a fine locket, typical of the victorian era. It features blue and white enamel with hand engraving.

Intricate lockets such as this (as well as other fine delicate items) were omitted from Hallmarking legislation as the act of punching the hallmark would destroy the hard work that has gone into making such a fine item. This is not the case in modern times now as laser hallmarking can be done on very small delicate items.
