BRILLIANT LADY LOCKET ( Art Nouveau Jewelry Gold Locket ):  I love this circa 1900 Art Nouveau styled gold filled locket. These pieces were particularly fashionable during the 1895 - 1915 Art Nouveau period. The motifs have an element of fantasy with "whiplash" curves and sensual overtones. The female face and figure were a favorite motif of Art Nouveau. This die stamped locket shows just such a woman’s face with flowing hair. It is set with 13 "brilliants" (paste stones). The remarkable thing is that none of these stones have darkened. The back of the locket is engraved in script "Nina". These name or initial lockets were tremendously popular. The inside retains both of its celluloid photo covers and is stamped "W & H Co.". I have several pieces that came from this same wonderful collection. Condition: Excellent. Still retains its original jump ring. 1 1/2" in diameter.
