An attractive antique European gold locket with a large, fast closing compartment opening at its back for a strand of hair of a loved one or similar keepsake, the front decorated with precisely soldered corded wires and gold granulation in a star shaped floral ornament, accentuated by a railing harmoniously linking the open scrollwork at top and bottom. The bail is large enough for a velvet ribbon or a stronger chain.
