MID VICTORIAN STEAMER TRUNK LOCKET CIRCA 1860

$ 2,200

Dreaming of travel like us?  This fascinating and whimsical Victorian locket from around the 1860s evokes the Golden Age of travel on The Grand Tour.  This charming locket in the form of an antique steamer trunk is smothered in fine engraving replete with two realistic buckle straps to keep it safe and secured.  The interior opens to reveal two locket spaces, with both bezels in situ. We have had another like it about a decade ago which was pinchbeck, that implies the popularity of the design. This would look equally sensational on a fob chain as part of a themed neckmess or on a very fine charm bracelet, but is certainly enough to feature alone on a finer chain too.
