Georgian Pinchbeck Heart Locket
A beautiful Georgian heart locket complete with the original bevelled glass.
Circa 1800. This is an earlier example and has a beautiful gentle pear shape.
The pendant is crafted from pinchbeck (an alloy used in antique jewellery to imitate gold) and contains a small golden heart above fabric.
The pendant is 4.1cm in length and 2.4cm wide. The actual heart is 2.6 x 2.3cm in size.
Wonderful clean condition. I haven’t opened the locket and it might require a jewellers assistance to do so as it is firmly shut.
