Early 1900's Mourning Necklace, Vulcanite Cameo Locket, Goldtone Filigree Frame, 20"
Early 1900's Mourning Necklace, Vulcanite Cameo Locket with forked prongs holding the cameo in place sitting raised on a filigree rectangular floral designed background that is 1.5" by 1". The cameo is approximately 1-1/8" tall and 3/4" wide. The cameo sits on the filigree background and the hinged locket is on the back of the filigree piece. On the right side of the locked, when opened is a gold tone bezel that can be removed and a photo put in it - there is a piece of clear film that may be newer but it is still a very nice old piece. The 20" chain is an alternating brassy necklace - there is typical vintage patina to that and it hooks with a spring clasp at the top of the filigree background. This does have typical patina and some wear but is still a very nice estate find. On vintage pieces I do brush dust and dirt off but I do not use cleaners as many vintage buyers prefer the piece to be as is.
(Lot Loc. No. is Win.25.15.1X1)
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
