Shakudo Bird Motif Locket Pendant Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
This fascinating locket--framed with a coin-edged and cable chain border--is hand crafted in 15K gold and Shakudo, a Japanese metal alloy, and displays an exquisitely detailed scene on each side depicting birds (a statuesque crane and small plump green pheasants perhaps) in a habitat of lush foliage. The marvelous work of art opens to reveal two picture compartments, and suspends from brightly burnished 17-inch belcher chain. An exotic rarity, circa 1875. Hand fabricated.
