A beautiful antique Victorian silver plated bookchain collar necklace with fancy chased links, and a rare 9ct gold Mizpah locket suspended. The bookchain has some wear to the plating, giving an almost gold plated sheen to alternate links. An intricate and beautiful bookchain, with a fabulous 9ct gold tested Mizpah photo locket. The locket has a deeply embossed front, spelling the word MIZPAH. The reverse depicts a shield shaped cartouche, surrounded by leaves and scrolls. The locket has some signs of wear and age, the faceted gold edge on the back of the locket has worn thin and split in a few places (not obvious) and there is a small pin hole to one of the leaves. The front of the locket is still good, the faceted edges are soft and aged (gold is a soft metal), but there are no splits. The rare nature of this locket has obviously lead to the signs of repair to it inside, there are traces of solder inside the locket to strengthen the outer edges. It has a beautiful golden glow to it. An amazing duo that looks gorgeous on. Condition is intricately described. Locket measures approximately 3.5cm x 3cm, bookchain 50cm.
