This antique Victorian era locket - spinner fob is magnificent! It has two dogs, Spaniels or perhaps Labradors, standing face to face at the top. It is an extremely large piece and very heavy! I have not tested the locket as to metal content, but it has a gold tone. On one side is a beautiful agate and the flip side is bloodstone. It dates to the 1850s - 1860s. The Civil War Era.
You can see in this photo how the locket part flips. The locket is very deep and would have easily held a tintype or daguerreotype photo.
Here is a view of the front and back. The edges are beautiful!
Look how massive this locket fob is! Just a beauty! I have been wanting to share this piece with you for sometime now. I hope that you have enjoyed seeing it. Thank you so much for stopping by!
