Here is a beautiful, unique Victorian locket
from Karlsbad. 36 deep, red almandine
garnets circle the locket and top the bale.
Dating from 1865 to 85, the agate back opens
to place a picture or locket of hair. Karlsbad
was a top resort for the wealthy of the time -
mountains, winter snow, summer relaxation.
The locket is 1 3/4" total length - the locket
alone is 1 7/8".long.
This is a rare and lovely piece - in very good
condition.
