18K French Victorian Onyx Double Face Cameo Locket


A really unique French Victorian c.1870-1880 double face cameo locket, set in onyx and 18k gold, and hallmarked with the French eagle head.

It features a cameo of two side facing soldiers in black and white. These are usually found in rings and very rarely in locket form, making this a unique and rare piece.

The locket opens up to reveal an inner compartment with its original glass and bezel frame. It opens and closes well. The locket leads up to an intricate fancy top frame, complete with its original bail that is also hallmarked with the French eagle head.

It measures 21mm x 45mm with bail, 21mm x 35mm without bail, and weighs 12.69 grams. It's original bail has a unique "H" shaped bail which prevents a chain to slide left and right, keeping the chain in place when the locket is worn.

Note: Marks may be seen from reflections of the lighting and are dust particles, and the locket is in wonderful condition.

Era - Victorian c.1870-1880
Materials - 18k gold / Onyx
Measurements - 21mm x 45mm with bail, 21mm x 35mm without bail
