C.1900. A green enamel and pearl heart locket. This beautifully made puffy heart is by Sloan and Company, a prestigious American jeweler from Newark, NJ. (e.1895.) With their office at 21 Maiden Lane in NYC, Sloan & Co. supplied high end shops, and produced important Edwardian and Art Nouveau jewelry. The company closed in 1950.
We love the green enamel details with the luminous pearls. The combination of the yellow gold and the light green is very pretty. The locket is 14k yellow gold, and the maker's mark is seen with 14k gold stamp inside.
Total Drop (N-S): Approximately 1.25" (with the bail)
