A wonderful and rare antique art nouveau gold locket victorian horse with horseshoe, circa 1890.

The front is designed with a horse inside of a lucky horseshoe that is adorned with dark paste stones in varying shades. The locket opens and closes and measures about 1 1/16 inches long with bail by about 7/8 inch wide.The locket dates to the late 1800's and is in lovely overall condition for its age. It comes with 17 inch gunmetal chain so that it is ready to wear. A lovely and rare find.
