Fascinating antique 9ct rolled gold locket with a daguerrotype photograph portrait dating from the mid Victorian period.
The rolled gold is not marked. Good hinge to lift the rear lens, the edges of the lens are nibbled, the photo is on the lens rather than in the locket compartment which contains a black velvet in order to view the photo at it's best, please see the pictures, good looking gentleman. Fantastic little piece of history.
Size including bale 4.0 x 2.7 cm or 1.6 x 1.1 inches.
Weight 7.7 grams or 4.9 penny weight.
