Antique memorial HAIR WORK locket watch chain Dated sweetheart heart front
The hair work on this wide watch chain is really wonderful with lots of different braid work. The hair is in great shape too ( a little dry but I think its age justifies that) . The heart locket is an art nouveau repousse locket that is original to it and it is signed on the inside SK (and another letter I can't make out) company. . The initials on the band of the watch chain look like WKE or WRE. The length of the watch chain is 4" long with an additional 1 1/3" for the locket. The width of the hair is 1 1/4". The color of the gold metal is a rose color. The top of the chain is marked pat'd sept 23 -1903. Usually the hair is not as well kept as in this one which makes it a really nice example of mourning jewelry.
