18 KT. Gold Sovereign Case / Locket

2,025.00

Beautiful and refined piece of English history. An 18 KT. polished yellow gold and engraved sovereign case with a crystal back which can be used for a flat keepsake like a pressed flower or a photo. The interior of the case opens like a pocket watch with a button on the top. The interior originally was meant for gold sovereigns and has a push down coin spot inside. The coin spot has beautiful engine turning for exquisite detail. The size of the coin that currently fits the space is an American nickel. The front of the case has a monogram with a fanciful script which may be an H and an A. It is very decorative and not necessarily distinguishable.
The case is round and domed in shape. It is in beautiful condition and would make a great pendant hanging from a long chain. Case is marked 18 KT on the interior of the coin holder.
1 and 3/4 inches from top of fold down bail to the bottom of the case.
30 mm wide
