Murrle Bennett Gold Locket
Circular 9 ct. gold locket with an open face on both sides, decorated on the front with a frame of alternate pearls and turquoise cabochons.
The finely scalloped outer edge, with its tiny beaded detail, follows the contours of the pearls and turquoise stones.
Opening via a hinge at the top of the back to reveal apertures for two small photographs and currently housing a pair of coloured child portraits which were already inserted when we acquired it.
Made by Murrle Bennett & Co circa late 1890's and marked MBCo and 9 ct. together with what appears to be an import mark.
The diameter is a tiny fraction below 3 cm and the 9 ct. necklace chain measures 42 cm.
N.B. If preferred, this locket can be supplied without the chain for £500.
