    I have had this one for awhile, but realise I never posted it...

    I don't know if it is 900 or 925 silver as someone thought clever to drill the upper bow part to add a big ring bale where the mark is...

    Big! 5cm or 1.7/8" wide, 6cm or 2.5/16" high, outrageous bale not included!

    I found online quantities of this ribbon bow motif lockets with same mark, but none as huge.

    Back is hinged to open, the two glasses are immaculate.
    A rose gold circle (not tested) around the front glass.

    Halas, 8 of the pastes on right side yellowed, mount showing traces of heating :-(

    I haven't found yet something convenient to put inside.

    Mystery to be continued! :-D

      Mystery goes thicker ;-)
    10. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Wow Kyra!!! How amazing !!!! We really need to know about "the mark" now!!!
    11. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 3 years ago
      I was thinking could the urn mark be a crown. With the Murrle Bennett German connections I was wondering could the crown stands for where the piece was made. Just a throught, I don't know if this as been mentioned in your other posts.
    12. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Judy, so true!!! At least, the new link shows the first in gold I ever seen!
      Plus, a relation with Murrle Bennet... but who made it for who???

      Jean, thanks for your suggestion, I already explored the crown track... but none was even similar to my "urn"

      Oh well it was just a thought. Did you get anything on the German silver forum? I'm presuming no, but just asking anyway.
    14. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Thanks for your interest, Jean!
      No answers either from 925-1000 forum, Pforzheim schmuck museum nor the German forum :-/
      I'm currently searching among old german jewellery makers advertisements...

      Fingers crossed, good luck.
