Antique Locket collar necklace fabulous grillwork bookchain origina......
Ola Poole had a lovely family in the early 1900's and she kept her family photo inside this antique locket. The collar chain that holds this is magnificent and one of the finest quality gold filled chains I have seen. It is pretty wide ( over 1/2") and measures 16" long. it is so well made it hangs like silk on your neck. The grill work on it is exquisite. The locket measures 1 1/2" long and has a rose gold filled ring that holds it to the necklace. All the gold is rich and intact on the whole necklace chain. No wear to the color. The locket is made by W& H company ( Wightman & Company of Providence, Rhode Island. The company dates from 1856 to 1922) and it is marked 1/4 gold shell. Sometimes Gold Filled is referred to as Gold Shell. Some pieces may be stamped 1/10 meaning they are Gold Filled or Gold Shell - they are High Grade Gold Filled with double the weight and thickness of gold used in the construction when compared to standard Gold Filled stamped 1/20. Since this 1/4 it is probably the highest grade of gold filled you can get.
The photos are of Ola and her husband and what looks like her sister. You can tell by the clothes this is early 1900's. It also has its original cello facing. Her name is a southern english name and the family was from Georgia. That was all I found out when I got this years ago except that she had a daughter. .
