Rare Antique Victorian C. 1860 Pique’ 10k Gold Inlaid Shell Pendant Locket For Sale

I am pleased to offer this extremely rare Antique Victorian Natural Shell with Gold Inlay Locket. The front of the locket has a beautiful, intricate piqué design of flowers and leaves with 2 roses on the bottom and a blank cartouche in the center where an initial could be engraved.

The front is in excellent condition with no damage. The back of the locket has a hairline crack. The shell is sturdy so the repair was done well. I have shown photos for you to view the back. The hinge on the the locket is in fine working order and the locket snaps closed securely. The little white dot that looks like a small cloud to the right of the design is a scratch on the lens of my camera. You can see in the other photos that there is no mark.

I purchased this piece at an estate sale in Maine and it was represented as 10K inlay. I do know that solid gold and silver was used in these shell pieces so I am sure it was well represented.

It measures 2” top to bottom and 1-1/4” across.

These pieces are very rare and there is currently one being sold on for $395.00 with a design much less detailed. Your chance to purchase this collector’s item for a fraction of its value. Offered at $9.99 with . Thanks for looking!
