The hinge & catch are still very tight & in Good working order. It measure 1 3/4” long, including the ornate bail, which looks Asian in style. It is about 3/4” wide & 1/4” deep. It has a nice, substantial feel & has a lovely patina. It is unmarked, so Impossible to accurately date, I would estimate that it is from 1880-1930.
There is a tiny ding to the inside left arm of the decorative bail, which is difficult to see without a jeweler’s loop. This is consistent with its age & use
The 16” 8 kt chain Is not included, but could be purchased with the locket for an additional fee. Please inquire if interested, 804.389.7323.
