I saw some truly spectacular pieces of jewelry at the Original Miami Antique Show. I’m still deep into editing the many, many photos I took….and I look forward to sharing those treasures with you soon.
One of those pieces was a locket – a locket so fantastic and utterly, utterly, odd – that I just couldn’t wait any longer to show it to you.
My favorite part of this locket is the mystery that it represents. This portrait is so very strange that nobody – not the jewelry store who owns it, not me, not any of the other collectors who have looked at it – can figure out what the heck it means. This kind of design from this era was certainly intended to reference or represent something specific, but it remains a enigma for now.
Unless, of course, you can help me solve the mystery?
