Large Victorian 10K Gold Filled Hand Chased Double Picture Locket

This Locket is signed B. MFG. CO., and was made by the Bagley Manufacturing Company located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, somewhere between 1880 and 1920. It is one of the more obscure and lesser known companies making jewelry during the late Victorian period. One of the more interesting facts about this company is that it was located directly between Attleboro, MA. and Providence, R. I.; the two biggest jewelry making cities in the world at that time. Actually, very little is known about the company other than what I have mentioned above.

This Locket was made in a traditional Victorian style. It is round with flat edges; not softly curved at the edge like an Art Deco period Locket. The Locket in not marked for gold content, but tests to be at least 10K Gold Filled. The Locket has a hand chased deign on the front comprised of an irregular rectangle done in a saw-tooth border, a flower at the top with draping leaves directly below encompassing a Blank oval cartouche meant for a set of small initials to be monogramed. To the side of this design left and right are horizontal lines done in 3 lines each, (a heavy cut line, a medium cut line and a fine cut line that make up each line). This completes the entire surface and design.

The Locket is a large 1 & 1/4 inches in diameter without the attached Bale ring. With the chain, the entire necklace weighs in at 24.2 grams. Inside, as you will see in the pictures, there are both Picture retaining rings; which bare the makers mark, and they are complete with cellophanes. The Locket is suspended from a multi-link, 18 inch gold filled chain, marked at the end with a closing tab that reads 1/20 12K. The spring ring clasp is also marked 1/20 12K for content. The Locket is attached to a swivel marked S.O. B. CO. which adds an additional inch to the full drop of the Locket.

This Locket is in Antique good condition! There is ever so slight wear through of the gold on the outer edge of the front side. At the 3:00 o'clock position on the reverse, there is a small area on the edge where there is wear through; one scratch at the center. There are a couple of small nicks on the face at the 3 o'clock and 9:30 o'clock positions on the face. None of the defects mentioned above detract from the Beauty of this Locket, but as a responsible Seller, I am obligated to let you know of any defects; as this is a used and antique piece of jewelry. The hinge is still tight, the Locket opens as it should and closes with a little snap. The Locket will house 2 pictures as shown in the pictures. In my humble opinion, this Locket would make an excellent gift for a loved one, a fine family heirloom, or a great piece to add to your collection.
