Finest Antique Georgian Regency Gold Pinchbeck Locket Original Chatelaine Beauty For Sale

Finest Antique Georgian Regency Gold Pinchbeck Locket Original Chatelaine Beauty


ClassiqueJewellery Store
Welcome to Classique Jewellery Description

This is amongst the most exquisite lockets we have ever listed.

I would date this beauty to the early 19th Century, late Georgian, Regency era but almost certainly before the Reign of Victoria.

It was designed to hang from a CHATELAINE, as indicated by its original soldered clip ring.

It is a wonderful, ornate locket in gleaming yellow metal, having a richly and very deeply chased and engraved border with stylised, 'Regency' style floral and foliate decoration to BOTH sides.

It very much has the appearance of high carat gold, especially to the interior, but this could be PINCHBECK or similar alloy.

It is no less magnificent for that.

It opens to the front, from left to right, to reveal a remarkably gleaming, almost MINT interior.

It has its original crystal glass glazed compartment and, unbelievably, the remains of a very faded, delapidated photograph.

This would originally have been intended to house a PAINTED miniature, although they were also used to hold a lock/section of plaited hair. The inner glazed compartment can be removed to place in your own images/keepsakes.

It is just an amazing and astonishing piece of jewellery, clearly steeped in history and yet seemingly 'neglected'. The interior looks as good as the day it was made. The exterior is NOT as gleaming yellow as the inside and the intricate hand engraved decoration is very slightly wearing in places but this is still amongst the very finest, genuine antique period lockets you will find.

It measures 3.5cms X 2.3cms and weighs a hefty 9.2 grams.

Guaranteed to delight, not just the lucky recipient, but all who will undoubtedly admire and covet it.

DON'T let it get away!

You will NOT find another of this quality and beauty at such a give-away 99p START price.
