This is an antique pre-1920's locket with its original blue textured paper inside that would have been behind a photo. The locket has a cross in the center on the front and back. THe front has open metal work ( also called pierced metal work) that might have allowed this to have been a vinagrette at one time. A scented piece of muslin or cotton would have been inside and the fragrance would have slowly wifted out as it was worn. The locket has a tiny miniature skeleton key inside ( it is not connected, it is just a tiny treasure). This hangs from an old heavy watch chain that measures 27" long. The toggle is in the front and the locket hangs from it. The locket is 2" long and is in great condition. I have never seen another locket like it so I think it must not have been mass manufactured. You can put a photo inside or a treasure and still keep your faith near your heart. This is an antique pre-1920's locket with its original blue textured paper inside that would have been behind a photo.
