The engraving is beautifully done, with the swan floating on the surface of a lake with the sun rising/setting to her right and a sailboat visible to her left. The foreground is filled with a rose and greenery. The locket is intricately cast with an ornate trim on both sides. The verso is plain. The locket opens to an empty interior and closes with a tight snap. The book chain features flat, grooved links. Original decorative bail. Wear to the plating consistent with age.
