Can you tell me about this old family cameo locket?
by Tunk Thompson
This is a square locket approx.1"x1". it may be gold or rose gold, it may even just be brass. I have no idea at this point.
The engraved character is unknown to me.
It looks to be wearing a headress of some type, possibly with feathers. The stone looks black at first apperance,but under light it is a deep (Dark) crimson red.
On the back is engraved a crane or a heron with some reeds and a sash through the corner.
The frame is ornately adorned with scrolls.
It opens up and has a piece to secure a picture.
I apologize for the poor quality of the photos.
Thank so much for your time. Tunk Thompson
