14K European Victorian Swan Enamel Locket
A stunning and rare European Victorian c.1860-1880 enamel double swan locket, crafted in 14k gold.
The locket is enamelled with a romantic scene of a swan couple, with the male swan having blue flowers and the female swan having pinkish red flowers on both of their necks. They are looking at each other lovingly as they glide gracefully in the pond, with cattail flowers in the background.
This is a beautiful piece that is rich in Victorian era symbolism. As swans mate for life, this would have been a love token from someone to their special someone. Additionally, the Victorian language of flowers associated the cattail flower with the symbolism of peace, wealth, and prosperity.
It was sourced from Spain and is European in origin. The enamel is is excellent condition with no wear or marks, and the locket opens and closes well.
The reverse of the locket contains an intricately detailed engraved door. The door opens which reveals a double sided inner locket compartment, with its original bezels and glass frames. It is kept in amazing condition for its age!
This is certainly an exemplerary example of the use of animals and flowers to convey unspoken feelings, through the gifting of jewellery from one to another. It is offered in its excellent and original condition, and would be a wonderful addition to any jewellery lover's collection.
