Victorian Malachite Padlock Bracelet
A lovely Victorian padlock bracelet set with malachite panels.
The silver padlock contains a glazed locket panel which contains finely woven hair.
Likely Scottish in origin and circa 1880.
The beautiful green chequerboard panels are in open back settings and have various natural patterns and mottling across their surfaces. The chequerboard is created by setting four pieces of malachite in each backed panel.
The bracelet is 20.5cm in length.
Each panel is 15x12mm
The padlock is 32x16mm
Total Weight: 24.8g
Condition: Good clean condition. Padlock works perfectly. Some light surface scratches across the piece. Tested as Silver. The Malachite panels appear to be 'backed'. One panel is not in the chequerboard format. Two of the panels have splits but the panels are intact. Stones are secure in mounts. Evidence of repair to clasp hook.
