Circa 1880 Victorian Gold Filled Forget-Me-Not Taille d'épargne Enamel Mourning Locket
is on back order
Every inch of this Victorian gold-filled locket is spectacularly engraved with delicate vines and scrolls. Each side bears taille d'épargne enamel work, one side features an abstract pattern, and the other features a forget-me-not flower. The forget-me-not flower symbolizes remembrance and love, implying that this locket was intended to be a sentimental or mourning piece that likely held a memento from a loved one. The interior features the original blue paper and beveled crystal bezels, ready for your photograph or lock of hair. This petite piece delightfully demonstrates the popularity of flower language and the luxurious aesthetic of the era.
Very Good antique condition with the most minor loss to the enamel consistent with age. (See Photos)
