Lockets have been around in some form or another for hundreds of years. They emerged from jewels that might be more accurately described as vessels - meant to hold perfumes or tinctures or herbs. The locket as a holder of keepsakes - portraits (photographic or earlier), hair, and the like - rose in popularity in the 19th century and has been particularly popular during wartimes ever since, as a way to hold close to you those who are physically far. This piece ups the sentimental ante with a face decorated in forget me not flowers, and panels still blank for engraving a name or initials.

Good antique condition with wear in line with age and use, including a small dent on rear, closure is secure.
