There is some wear and slight denting to the gold. The hinges and clasp of the locket are in good working condition and inside a watercolor of a lady in black remains well preserved behind the original glass lens. This locket was very likely kept as a keepsake that was not worn as jewelry but kept as a memento of the deceased. Circa 1820-1830. The locket dimensions are 1 1/8 inch diameter and 10mm thickness when closed.
