Victorian “Souvenir from F.F.” Silver Horseshoe Locket

$1,500

This thing is not a tiny charm, but probably was a trophy. The interior is lined with silk. It was made in London in 1865; we know this by the lion hallmark and the bust of young Queen Victoria/the letter k. Inside it's engraved "Hill Calder & Clarke 29 Regent St London". Tally-ho.
