Art Nouveau Rhinestone Flower Locket
An absolutely stunning early 1900's gold filled locket, featuring detailed engraving of flowers and adorned with rhinestones. The back of the locket has the original initials in an older calligraphy. This is a unique and old locket!
The center of the locket has an oval with stripes, and a flower with a center rhinestone adorns either side. Ascending from each flower is another flower crowned with a rhinestone. At the top of the locket are four rhinestones in a curved design. The back of the locket is engraved with the initials "AFC". The locket hangs on a new 14k gold filled chain.
HISTORY: It's stamped on the inside with the maker's mark for Finberg Manufacturing Company out of Attleboro, Massachusetts, which was founded in 1888. We estimate this to the Art Nouveau period, early 1900's.
SIZE: This piece is larger, measuring approximately 1 1/4" in diameter.
MATERIALS: Gold filled metal, rhinestones
CONDITION: It's in overall good condition, with all rhinestones intact, and a tight snap shut. The hinge wiggles slightly, and there are a few small pinhole size dents on the back, as can be seen in the photo and expected with the age of the piece.
A beautiful locket that will be treasured by its new owner!
