Description

Harry Emanuel Art work

This antique large locket pendant is Victorian period

Distinctive artwork attributed to Harry Emanuel, tests solid 18 KT gold, bearing Austro Hungarian import marks for the period 1872/1902 – later engraved on the back for remembrance date for being given as family gift

The locket is simply fabulous piece of art of the sentimental, romantic Victorian jewellery, typical of Harry Emanuel works of art usually not marked as very distinctive of his works

Hand made of plain satin gold work centered by two lovingly birds upon the nest with pearl eggs and background of forget me not flowers of stunning Blue White and Red making a subtle colour contrast

Back is dated London 27 September 1901

It has two internal windows with rich Turquoise silk and original glass, all intact and perfect except a few scratches on the reverse side

Locket is 59 x 36 mm. including bail (h. x w.)

A similar example is displayed in the Victorian & Albert Museum

Harry Emanuel was bestowed the title of Gold & Silversmith to the Queen and Prince of Wales in 1862 – known for the practice of incorporating animals, birds in particular, into jewellery- every piece was different made from the other

A stunning art piece bearing history and beauty into life

Good condition keeping with age, a few scratches on the reverse side otherwise perfect

Unless otherwise stated boxes are for presentation only
