This beautiful gold shell locket (gold shell means a sheet of gold is a “shell” or outer casing to the base metal.) is nicely hand engraved and embossed. The locket is engraved: “In memory of C. Doody died Aug. st.23 1845 Aged 26.” Measuring approximately 1 inch in diameter the letter “M” is ornately hand engraved in the shield on the front of the locket. The glass on the back of the locket is in good condition and is set in a frame with a hinge. I have not opened the locket as it seems to be in tight and I did not want to risk breaking it.
