Antique Victorian French Jet mourning pendant with matching chain

A Victorian French Jet mourning locket with a decorative sash, a matching chain, and the remnants of a hidden photo compartment. The locket is French Jet (imitation onyx), polished to a perfect gloss with rounded edges. The locket is made of just one piece of French Jet flush-fitted with a 10K gold photo bezel, the insert of which is now absent. The decorative face has a decorative sash with leaf, blossom, and pearl accents. The original bail has the same blossom motif and the chain sequence (which can be cleverly detached from the locket) features blossom links spaced by round beads of jet.

Note: You can see similar lockets from the pages of a mourning jewelry/hairwork supply catalog from 1870 in the last photograph here!

Measurements: 2" x 1 5/8" oval, 8mm thick. Chain 16"
Era: 1900s-1910s
