Antique Vintage Art Nouveau 12K 12ct Green & Yellow Gold Filled GF Repousse Locket

This Antique locket is simply of Awesome design & styling - it is simply stunning! It features a fabulous repousse design combining the Yellow Gold hued body with Green Gold hued foliate elements. Sparkling brilliant paste stones accent the arced elements. This design is intricately detailed adding to the dimensional decoration to great effect. The pictures really do provide the best description of all.

The back is engraved with the monogram that appears to be JLP. Inside are both original frames and it is suspended from a thick jump ring ready for a chain to be added.

It has the silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold and expected of quality antique/vintage jewellery.

OVERALL

Near MINT condition! The only detail stopping me from referring to it as Mint is the fact it is engraved with a lovely monogram, typical of the era in which it was manufactured. There is no damage, repairs, dents or wear and I am hope the pictures show just how impressive this really is. The combination of the green and yellow gold hues is amazing and not a combination commonly seen. For a locket its age it is just fabulous and just perfect for gift giving!
