Antique Victorian gold-filled locket with hair work and photograph

A mid-late Victorian locket of modest size with both a hidden hairwork compartment and a photo face. The photo shows a women in formal dress with a gorgeous headdress. The portrait is trimmed in a twisted gold frame and held under glass. This side has a hinging feature, perhaps once securing a further piece of glass. The other side of the locket has machined lid that rests flush to the locket and lifts to reveal a neat and beautifully woven plait of hairwork. Deeply cast foliate motif trim. This locket could be worn with either side facing out.
