This is a very hard to find antique locket on a 16” chain. A charming Fox is framed within a horse shoe with the Lucky 7 nail pattern*. The locket is hallmarked sterling, Birmingham, England, 1886. The locket opens & closes as it should. Its hinges are in excellent shape. Please note that the fox has a very small ding to his snout, consistent with its very old age & use. It measures approximately 1”x3/4”.
*Please note that the horse shoe is facing down so that Luck is ever flowing upon the wearer. It was not until the 1950’s that people started to wear horse shoes facing the opposite direction.
