VINTAGE 9CT GOLD LOCKET & CHAIN FROM 1946

599.00

Beautiful Quality in this 1946 Picture Locket - All the way from UK!

This vintage piece was crafted by the jewellers B. H. Britton & Sons of Birmingham England in 1946.  It is fully hallmarked and in absolutely excellent, vintage condition.  

The pendants is embellished on the front with Art Deco parallel lines and subtle polygon shapes in perfect symmetry.  It is hinged at the bottom (rather than the side) and it closes securely with no 'wobbles' in the hinge whatsoever.  It comes on a 9ct gold chain which we believe is the original chain produced by the same maker since it is beautifully made with no sign of welding to the links.  B. H. Britton and Sons were renowned for their chains since the mid 1850's.

The pendant measures approx 2cms long x 1.5cm wide and the chain measures 53cms with a solid, spring clasp.  Together, they weigh 5.9 grams.

There is a fascinating story to this jewellery manufacturer. They began in 1855 and they used to make cases for Rolex in the early to mid 1990's, hence their reputation for high quality jewellery production. 

We purchased this pendant on a recent trip to England so we are able to offer it at a great price!  It would make a unique & poignant gift for someone special and can only increase in value over time!

It will be sent in the box as pictured.
