Ask a question

Novelty jewellery was fashionable in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and fans were a popular motif – anything from Japan or China was considered exotic.

Here’s a delightful rose gold locket, opening from the middle to reveal a sweet round picture compartment.

Both back and front are appealing, with a vacant shield on the back skilfully incorporated into the design.

The inside bears a patent stamp on one side, and a mark for nine-carat gold on the other.

I love the scalloped shape and the restrained engraving, which is carried through to the surround of the interior frame.
