Antique Victorian 18 Karat 5 Page Book PendantRegular price $ 1,700.00
This is quite an exceptional item. The 5 Gold pages (7 if you count the inner covers), were intended to be engraved with family names, births, marriages etc. and keep the local jeweller busy for many years. However, this Gold Book has never been engraved, so you, the next owner, may wish to restart this charming custom as there are 12 surfaces upon which to keep your family details. The Book has 4 Gold studs on one side which mimic the design of a 2 foot wide family album, a traditional spine and an emblem on front and back.
The piece makes a very "different" kind of pendant.
Dimensions: 2 cm wide x 2.5 cm high
Weight: 15.8 g
