An incredibly rare antique French champleve enamel locket from the Victorian era forms a vibrant focal point in this dramatic assemblage statement necklace.

The locket form is most intriguing. A central black oval with an ornate pattern is topped with an equally decorative scallop-edged design while two strands of leaves cascade down each side of the locket to a smaller decorative flourish at the bottom.

The locket is brass with exquisite bright champleve enamel in shades of black, white, red, blue, yellow, and green. There is very minor enamel loss on two of the pale blue leaf stems on the right side of the locket (see photo for close up). There is also some hard to see enamel loss on the far right black panel on the uppermost part of the locket. It is hard to discern since the enamel loss reads as black which was the original color of the enamel on this particular panel. The slight enamel loss does not detract from the beauty of the piece.

The reverse of the locket has a keepsake hinged door perfectly sized for either a photo or perhaps a bit of keepsake hair.

The locket hangs its original enamel bail and a strand of colorful beads in shades that match the locket design, rhinestone rondelles, and black crystal beads. Two additional strands of black crystal beads add more drama to the design.

Vintage brass box chain and wider vintage brass curb chain complete the design which can be worn at either 18" or 19" (length can be altered upon request)
The locket measures 1.75" long (without bail) and 2.5" long (with bail) x 1.25" wide

Secured with an antique gold-filled lever clasp salvaged from a watch chain.
