This is a favourite piece to show you.........
Victorian Gilt Banded & Bullseye Agate Locket Back Pendant on Period Chain with Buckle Bale
I bought it locally online in 2013 for only $36.00 which surprised both myself and the seller!! Neither of us could understand why there was not more interest in it. Anyway, I was more than happy to have it!!
I guess it would be classed as costume as it isn't precious metal or stones, but it has been made very nicely I think with the banded agate with the little bullseye agate set around the edge.
The locket back still has the original woven cloth in it. I guess this could be regarded as a sentimental piece or love token and may have held a photo or lock of hair.
I love the bale on this.....it is like a buckle.....probably some kind of symbolism in that.......I haven't looked that up!
The seller said the chain was of the period.....it is really nice and a good weight too.
Hope you enjoy this piece.......thanks, Judy
