ANTIQUE VICTORIAN FORGET ME NOT LOCKET COLLAR NECKLACE STERLING SILVER DATED 1882
This stunning Antique late Victorian locket and collar has been commissioned in Sterling Silver with a fabulous embossed locket engraved with beautiful forget me nots on the front with a further bouquet of flowers etched onto the back.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
The collar is a wonderful, articulated design complete with a large ring clasp to hold the locket. It’s a wonderful piece of history and displays clear Birmingham hallmarks which date the piece to 1882.
