This unusual oval locket is set with an enamelled miniature of a Pharaoh with a diamond-set head-dress. It sits within a border of pearls and diamonds, beneath an enamelled cresting and is set on a glazed compartment, which may have been intended to carry a lock of hair. It carries a French gold assay mark.
