Filgree doubled sided locket quite large and silver gilt tested no makers marks etc. inside the glass insert is a very minute babies rattle. I have had 1 before many years ago and was stumped then to find out about it.Someone said it could be given to someone for luck on having their first baby?.. Any clues out there please. I think it is antique?the last photo is 2 with a chain. Was told by the V&A museum in London it was roughly circa 1850 probably punjab from Delhi.

    Ohhh very cool!!! Very unique piece Yohanna. Glad you were finally able to figure out what it is! I always get where I'm trying to research one item and then all of a sudden I see an item I was trying to research a year ago! So much fun!
