This vintage gold swivel locket has such an unusual opening. Usually the lockets we find are hinged to one side, but this locket is made of two halves that are connected at the top and it opens by pushing the top half either left or right to slide open.
The front panel of the locket has lovely engraved detailing too and both halves of the locket have cardboard inserts are are ready to hold your tiny photos!
The locket is made of 9ct gold and the attached jump ring has British hallmarks for 9ct gold, Birmingham and what looks to be the date letter Q for 1990. The locket measures approx 19.8mm tall (not including the jump ring but including the fixed ring at the top) by approx 12.4mm wide by approx 5.4mm deep and weighs approx 1.35g. The photo spaces inisde the locket measures approx 14.4mm tall by 9.8mm wide.
Condition - The locket is in good vintage condition with some light signs of age and wear, including some surface wear to the gold. The swive mechanism still works well and is fairly firm, althought it can move to open a little when worn.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale*
