Locket by Mayle & Meyer
Heart-shaped silver locket by Meyle & Mayer made in Pforzheim, Germany circa 1900.
Beautifully enamelled on the face with two snowdrops set against a background that is guilloche enamelled in shades of blue graduating through a pale greesish ivory to pink at the pointed end of the heart.
The locket is hinged on one side and opens to reveal two compartments, each finished in silver-gilt. A pair of little buttons on the opposite side to the hinge facilitates opening and closing.
The mark on the fixed ring at the top is somewhat indistinct but we are quite satisfied it is that of Mayle & Mayer.
A fraction below 3 cm. long by 2.5 wide and on a substantial doubled silver chain measuring approximately 45 cm.
