I've taken some additional photos of both pieces and hope you can see the hallmarks. They are extremely tiny, but I know that one of them is a coffin shaped hallmark, with what appears to be a dog head.This hallmark is on the clasp of the bangle. Through research, this coffin-shaped hallmark means the piece is .800 silver. The bracelet also has a hallmark which looks like M.S. I believe these are the maker's initials, which are also on the inside edge of the bracelet. The number 6 is also present but part of it has worn away.
The locket does open and the inside is scratched. There is a "Z" or the number "2" scratched on the inside, on both the left and right side. This locket is hallmarked APN in two places at the top. I am still doing some research on what these letters stand for.
I have not attempted to clean either piece due to their age.
Please note, I am by no means an expert, so please take the time to view all of the photographs and research the hallmarks for yourself. If anyone knows more about the hallmarks on these pieces, please feel free to send me a message. I will gladly include the info in this listing!
