Antique Locket Sterling Silver Heart Oriental Necklace 1930s Jewelry $135


This charming antique heart locket was made in the 1920-1930 era. The petite puffed heart is Sterling Silver and is signed Sterling. The locket is a Japanese Oriental design with two different engraved scenes of Mt. Fuji on the front and back.

The locket has the original sterling bail and the original sterling chain. The chain has the original ornate diamond shaped insert clasp from the 1920-1930 era.

Petite in size, the heart is 1" tall with the bail and 3/4" wide or 25 mm x 19 mm. The inside has places for 2 photos that can be about 15 mm x 18 mm in size each. The sterling chain is 16 1/2" or 42 cm long. If the chain is not long enough for you, you can always put this locket on a different chain but keep this chain because it is very old. The clasp is signed Silver as well.

The locket, chain, and clasp are all in excellent condition. There are no crimps in the chain and no scratches or dings in the locket. The outside of the locket has been lightly polished retaining a good portion of the original old patina. The inside of the locket, the sterling has not been polished. The locket is hinged on the side and the closure mechanism is in tight working order.
