Evolving from ancient amulets, European designs for lockets appear to date to the 16th century, when small pendants were worn to conceal good luck charms, small fabric squares soaked in perfume to ward off the poor smells on public thoroughfares, painted portraits, and even, on occasion, poison.

This locket features delicious sculpted fringe and large scale boules around the top details, red fabric interior, and original bail. The locket is in excellent condition and is a dramatic example of the archaeological revival period aesthetic that really set the tone of 1870s English fashions.
