A painted gull flies on white guilloche that resembles softly billowing clouds. Ever so faint in the distance, a second gull soars through the sky. The artwork on this locket is remarkable and in very good condition. Place photos of your other favorite birds inside...or maybe your fave humans...and pin it close to your heart. The bow brooch makes it a sweet adornment for the collar or waistline.
Enamel, textured gold tone metal. Both unmarked vintage pieces. Together 2.5" tall; pin 1.75" wide; locket 1.25" wide. Very slight damage to the locket's right edge, as to be expected with age. Note, this not an original pairing. If you are interested in seeing this locket on a different brooch, or a chain, please contact us for options.
The gull most typical of the Northeast US is a Herring Gull (Larus argentatus). They patrol the skies near beaches, open land, and -less romantic- our landfills. Smart and opportunistic, this gull knows how to survive in the modern world.
